NX to K adapter
Feb 14, 2014

I just received an adapter for my pentax lenses so that I can fit them on NX300. It is this one:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/200955937026?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

They mention:

Fit all Samsung NX mount Camera (Compatible with NX10, NX5, etc.)

I have the following problems.

All my 13 K-mount lenses have a small play when fitted on the adapter. I can even hear a sound (click--clack) when I gently move the camera-adapter-lens combination

The lens is not recognized by the camera

Focus peaking can not be enabled

The adapter does not lock in the 12:00 clock position, but a few degree after. Also, the adapter thickness various 0.12mm along its diameter. A friend with a NX100 uses the same model with success.

Any thoughts? Sth I missed in the camera menu or the listing on ebay?
