Check the compatibility of any lens with your DSLR
If you're a Pentax shooter, you probably already know that most K-mount lenses work with most digital K-mount cameras. One of the Pentax system's key strengths is indeed exceptional backwards-compatibility, even with the very first Pentax lenses ever made.
However, there are some camera-lens combinations which carry specific prerequisites in order to function properly. Others are outright incompatible, or suffer from limitations. To help you verify that a lens will work with your camera, we're happy to officially unveil our new lens compatibility checker!
