I'm wondering if the M42 to Nikon adapters will allow me to effectively use Nikon lenses on a K3. I know the mounts have been converted but will it work with an adapter?

Thanks,
Dory

There are a million adaptors that will adapt other bodies to take M42 lenses, but not the other way around. I tried looking for my K3 too just for the hell of it, but no luck.

And be careful if you start looking for yourself on eBay. The way a lot of the guys word it, it SOUNDS like it goes M42 to Nikon, Canon, etc., but it's the opposite.
