I have obtained three leica lenses an elmarit 28mmf2.8-R/Summicron 50mmf2
and a elmarit vario 75-200mm-R all in great nick. Any one know if there is an adaptor to pk so I can try them on my K30 ?

I am not sure that there is an adapter, although, given that they are 'R' lenses they can be re-mounted to work as manual lenses on a Pentax DSLR - check out 'Leitax' online. I think the specifications of Leica R and Pentax K are so close that an adaptor is impractical and remounting is the only way (someone else will tell me if I am wrong though)

I use a Leica R5 as my main film camera and only have one lens - the 50mm summicron f2 - the same as you mention. It's a great lens on film so I'd love to see what it is like on a DSLR. I seem to be using it more and more these days...
