If the adapter is good enough - that is exactly what they do + selling mirror less lenses.

That's an assumption built on the premise that K-mount users are generally unhappy with the K-mount cameras and they're looking for something else. I really don't think that's true...

Not really. I like DSLR cameras. But - I am currently looking for a good and compacter camera with a big sensor. It looks like the best choices are mirrorless cameras (for some strange reason). And then it would be nice if that camera is compatible with my lenses.

And here's the catch - it would be nice, but it would also compete (internally) with the other systems - with the K-mount. We're talking about at least a camera (for starting), several lenses (others to follow as fast as possible) and that theoretical adapter; they could give you that, but only by making other K-mount users unhappy.

We are perceiving them as moving at snail pace, yet we're asking to add a brand new system to their line-up? It's better if they won't stretch their resources too thin.
