What isn't on the market and what I personally would rather have, is a K-mount mirrorless camera where the empty mirror box was filled with a focal reducer, so that AF was still an option with older Pentax FF lenses, as well as the rest of the mount working as it should to report data to the camera.

For this to work, focal reducer will need to be removable as otherwise all APSC lenses will only work in crop mode (11 MP for APSC lens if the sensor is 24 MP).

Certainly possible. I have a couple of the old TCs with removable elements so you can use them as extension tubes. Same idea really

Thank you
