No. Even, if someone would build an adapter it could not possibly fully work. One normally adapts a lens for a larger format to a camera with a smaller format. Going the other way, as you suggest, would place a lens with a small imaging circle compared to your sensor or film and result in clipped edges. other words you would only the center which kind of ...

If you want to continue using your seven Pentax lenses, your best option would be to upgrade to a better Pentax camera. There are mechanical adapters that allow Pentax K-mount lenses to be the correct distance from the sensor so that infinity focus is possible with Canon EF mount cameras.

There are two important restrictions for adapters from one system to another. First the lens must be made for a sensor or film format that is bigger or the same than the target format. If I am correct this is the case here. The second is the flange focal distance, the distance between the bayonet and the sensor. If this distance is higher for the camera ...

The answer is yes, but you might not be happy with the results. You can use an adapter like this Fotodiox K-mount to Nikon adapter, but there are several drawbacks. No autofocus No metering Lowered image quality, since the adapter contains a glass element Overall, you are probably better off buying a new lens.
