I do not own any modern lenses for my Pentax K1 Camera body.....

             I have a few reviews of some of these lenses in the video section of this website and also on my YouTube Channel.

Godox Xpro P Flash Trigger

I also occasionally use this trigger with the Pentax K1 to fire all my off camera Godox Flashes that are normally used for my Canon Camera's. 

I have to use a small adapter on the bottom of this trigger so only the center contact works due to the fact that I am using all full manual vintage lenses on the Pentax K1. The adapter works as an limited electrical pass-thru so to speak....This trigger would function properly with all my Godox off camera flashes if I was using modern Pentax Lenses.

Lens Adapters

Set of 3 Asahi Pentax Extension Tubes

The Pentax Extension Tube Set contains three tubes of different length which can be used individually, or in any combination, to obtain the desired magnification. Actual magnification effect changes with each specific lens.

Pentax Mount Adapter K

The Pentax Mount Adapter K allows M42 Takumar and other M42 screw type mount lenses to attach to a Pentax K mount camera.

B&H Link to Purchase 

I also use Fotodiox M42 to Pentax K-Mount Adapters on some of my Takumar's

with the locking clip removed. These adapters I actually leave permanently on the lenses but you really need to be careful using them like this.
