Ricoh Macro Tubes

Hello again!

I happened upon an old Ricoh film camera. What caught my eye were the lovely 50mm lens and accompanying macro tubes. Is there any way I can get them to mount on a Nikon camera (D40x/D90)? Research suggests that Ricoh lenses are a Pentax K mount, but apart from that I found nothing!

Hope you're all well!

Ricoh is indeed PK. Macro tubes are very cheap, It would cost you more to buy an adapter Pentax K to Nikon? Why not reverse your 50mm lens on your 50mm prime or zoom and you have 1:1 all for the cost of a coupling ring. See SRB griturn. Actually this will be different on a D40 due to the sensor size but have a go.
