Re: K-mount adapters for Pentax new-mount cameras

Even if the depth is enough for focus and aperture motors, what about the width? The adapter is going to be very ungainly. I could see a protrusion on the bottom but I wonder if it would be enough, because you wouldn't want it going past the bottom of the camera.

Edit: somebody pointed out Sony's LA-EA4 adapter which does exactly what I describe, so obviously it's possible. Definitely ungainly though, and expensive for what it is.
