My K1-K5 tube kit arrived today. I compared the mount to the PK-12. They looked identical. So I mounted it on the N6006-mounted easily, and you could clearly see that the K1 did not come in contact with the body's electrical contacts. Then mounted it on the D300 and all was well. However, you can't use an AF lens because there's not enough clearance for the electrical contacts.
