    A friend of mine has several old screw mount Pentax lenses. He wants to get
    a digital SLR. Does Pentax make an adapter so that he could use these
    lenses with a current model?

    Yes, Pentax USA sells the adapters on its web site. They cost $30, a
    little more than the non-genuine items usually sold on eBay, that can
    cause problems.

    Go to:
    http://www.pentaximaging.com/index.jsp
    and click on the link "Purchase Our Products". Then click on "Shop
    Online".

    In the left sidebar, under the heading "SLR Accessories", click on the
    link to "Teleconverters/Mount adapters". Finally, select "Mount
    Adapter B".

    Adapters are also available from Pentax authorised dealers.

  3. Yes, Pentax makes one for use on their K-mount line of cameras:
    http://www.adorama.com/PXAB.html

    Adorama also sells several adapters to mount Pentax screw mount lenses to
    various cameras, including Pentax K-mount, Minolta Maxxum, Nikon, and Canon EOS.
    Go to Adorama.com and click on 'Cameras & Lenses' in the menu at the left of the
    screen. Then on the next screen, under 'Lenses & Accessories' click on 'Lens
    Accessories'. Finally, on the resulting screen under 'Refine Search' click on
    'Adorama' under 'Manufacturer' and 'Lens to Camera Adapters' under 'Type' and
    then click on the 'Search' button.

    'Adapted' screw mount Pentax lenses won't work with some DSLRs, but they do work
    with 'function limited' on Pentax DSLRs.
