Is "... lens with a 42mm screw fit" same as M42?
And all I have to do is to buy an adapter between M42 and K fit for my K10D?

Yes and yes.

Some adapters are better than others. You'll need to do some research to make sure you get one that does the job properly. (I'm not an expert on this).

Good choice, all you need now is an adaptor.

The one Polchraine suggests is best, it allows focus to infinity.
Cheers, HG

K110+DA40, K200+DA35, K3 and a bag of lenses, bodies and other bits.

Mustn't forget the Zenits, or folders, or...

I've some gallerieshere CLICKY LINK! and my PPG entries.

Is it possible that some adapter rings don't support infinity focus?
Damn, here in Sweden that adaptor is REALLY expencive, but found pirate ones for 1/8 of the price.

Need to do some research, and thats quick, only have 1 week on me before I leave for Croatia.

Pentax Adapter K is the one to use.
Best regards, John

I would think all M42 to K adapters support infinity focus.

With the Pentax original the adapter is flush with the body when it's put in on it's own. As long as it doesn't stick out from the body it should be OK.

The Pentax one is a perfect fit not sure about 3rd party ones. Ask SRS to send you one by airmail. You also see these SH on UK ebay.

New Pentax price is 67.99 (splutter, cough, choke)
I think the price was around 16 not so long ago

Buy an original Pentax adapter. I have one genuine one and three third-party (cheap) ones, the cheap ones have a habit of sticking inside the lens mount which can then mean several minutes with tweezers trying to remove them. They also have a nasty, scratchy quality to them whereas the genuine adapter always mounts and dismounts perfectly.

With the benefit of hindsight I would just buy the genuine adapter and ignore the cheap copies - none of them (the cheap ones) now get used and so they've proved to be a false economy.

If you speak to SRS I'm sure you'll find they're more than happy to mail items to Sweden.
