    Pentax 67 to 645 adapter...

    Looking for a good Pentax 67 to 645 adapter. I would love to use my Pentax 6x7 lenses on my 645nii, but it seems these things have virtually disappeared from the planet! Please PM me with price/condition if you have one you wish to sell. I would really appreciate it

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Mike, I believe that Pentax still sells them new in Japan. If you have trouble finding one here, contact Dirk Rosler (www.japanexposures.com) and see if he can get one for you.

    Hi, thanks Oren. No longer made, but there are around used and in good shape. I get them occasionally, but not cheap, especially now with the 645D coming out...

    It looks like Pentax 67 to K mounts are being made on Ebay now for reasonable prices.

    Those are still available from Pentax new. Yes, reasonable prices on eBay, but you get what you pay for. I see a lot of folks coming back for quality products though, wishing they had decided to pay a little more at the first place. May not be important to everyone of course.

    Thanks...

    There are indeed a ton of 67 to k-mount adapters (all generic of unknown quality with costs all over the board) out there and I'll probably pick on up one of these days. The 67 to 645, however, now that's a rare duck!

    Thanks for the feedback follks! I appreciate it.

    By the way, there have been 2 on eBay recently... one went for well over $300 and the other - $250. So, I have been watching for them there and my local shops have nothing... Ugh!

    It would appear that the 67 to 645 is still available new after all, so I was wrong saying it was no longer made. Sorry for giving that impression, it was an error. Please see the link supplied by Oren earlier for more.

    I received the adapter from Dirk. Thanks again! I'd highly recommend him to anybody. Very honest and upright person.
