Are all your old lenses K-mount or M42? If not then you will have a problem with adapters for both the K-1 and KP because for other mounts you will need an adapter with glass to "correct" the distances which are costlier and will impact IQ, or at least the aperture.

Your statement is not necessarily correct: This depends very much on the lens-mount. E.g. Leica R or Pentacon 6 will not require an adapter with glass on a Pentax 35mm or APSC cam.

This being said, for the sole purpose of adapting a wide variety of mounts, a K-mount-cam is probably not the ideal platform. For M42&PK, it is an ideal platform.
