    Possible to convert Minolta Lens to Pentax Lens?

    I just bought a 50mm f1.7 Minolta lens at a thrift shop for 5$. The lens looks really nice. I have a Pentax k100d, and I was wondering if their is any way to use it on my Pentax. I held it up to my camera, and was able to use it pretty well, but I have keep my hand on it, as it has a different mount, obviously. I was wondering, do they sell adapters, or something like that? or is it possible to change the mount, to the pentax k-mount, I have an extra pentax mount I took from and old lens of mine. Is it possible? I don't want to take it apart, and the realize it is not possible. Thanks.

    First, I wouldn't post this question in the Canon DSLR forum.

    Second, probably not. http://photo.net/pentax-camera-forum/00KmoT

    You might be able to fit a Minolta-M42 adaptor on the lens and an M42-Pentax adaptor on the camera.

    Yea, I'm sorry I realized it after I had posted it, and I don't know how to delete it.
