Pentax K to Q 3rd party adaptor

Any recommendations?

Ideally I want one to work with DA lenses as well as M lenses so will need some form of apature control. Also a tripod mount would be great.

If you want aperture control you might have to have the Pentax adapter.

I have a Chinese one with no adjustments, just to quickly try out the potential, and it works fine with a lens with aperture ring. However, the real thing is what's needed for best results. Not only does it have aperture control, but also a built in shutter that is really needed for moving subjects.
Best regards, John

I have a cheap adapter, bought from ebay.

It has an aperture ring control which operates the aperture leaver on the lens mount, so works with A, F, FA and DA lenses. There are no markings to show you what aperture you are setting but it does allow you to operate the diaphragm and get some aperture control.

It did cost a little more than the versions with no aperture control but far cheaper than the Pentax one, although of course that is much better with full automation and a shutter.

This is a similar one link
