No dx sized mirrorless in the pipeline? I have 2 beautiful (15 and 21mm) SE lenses, but decided I need something nice to use them on or sell both. Going back to a dslr is no option for me.

I've just picked up (from above) that Fuji X bodies can take pentax glass. How does it work? I presume some sort of mount modification? Sounds worthwhile and helps justify pentax lenses.

Does that void the warranty? Expect it means a greater level of creativity and helps you shoot off axis..

I would appreciate a little more info on the use of Pentax lenses on Fuji cameras. Was that a serious comment about blue tac or just a joke?

You need an adapter. Pentax lens to Fuji body although it is designated k to x mount.
Lots available, eBay and Amazon.

And I wouldn't recommend Blu-tak.

As David said you need an adapter. If any of your Pentax lenses do not have an aperture ring then the adapter has to have some sort of aperture control. link on ebay
