Hello again,

i took a random quick sample from ebay, because i am not able to understand what fits on k-x and what not!
Any help / guidelines would be nice please, and thanks in advance!

No, the DA35/2.4 is not out yet - it was only just announced yesterday. The 35/2.8 you reference is a macro lens, and part of the "Limited" series - that's why it's more expensive. The DA35/2.4 was created specifically to be the answer to the question you posed in this thread: what would be a good first prime.

As to what fits the K-x, see the various lens guides posted on this forum and elsewhere, but basically, if a lens says it is for Pentax, it fits. If it's older than about 30 years, it will need an adapter - and it will say "M42" or "screwmount" in the description. If it says it's an autofocus lens, it will autofocus on your K-x.
