    Do someone know if there is an adapter for SMC Pentax-DA 35mm F2.4 AL, because my Pentax lens adapter (Pentax PK Lens to Sony NEX) bought on Ebay
    doesn´t seems to function with this lens...Thanks for any help cause I really love this lens with my Pentax K-R, and I wonder how amazing this could be with my nex F3.

    You need to get a PK adapter that has a slide switch on it that will engage the aperture lever on the lens. They are usually marked Lock -- Open and you get limited aperture control, probably wide open, fully closed, and 2 or 3 in the middle. No real idea what you actually get for apertures.

    Here's an example, there are several manufacturers. I think mine is a Rainbow Imaging.
