ANyone know this lens

I looked around the site and can't find anything.
though the seller claims it was made by pentax the box states Schneider

Samsung 50mm f1.4

If its AF (and it looks to be) it's not a bad deal if its a rebadged pentax

Brand New 50mm f1.4 Lens for Pentax K20D or K Series DSLR - City of Toronto Cameras For Sale - Kijiji City of Toronto Canada.

I just bought a Samsung (Rebadged ist DL2) from the market place for my nephew and the kit lens was the Schneider - Xenon 18-55. All of my DA lenses fit and worked on the camera. I don't know if the lens coating is the same as the Pentax but the lens should work on your camera.

I don't think it's a rebaged pentax in this case. The mount looks totally different and I think the seller is mistaken that it would fit on Pentax DSLR cameras.

Not a K-mount lens. It's a Minolta A mount aka Sony Alpha Samsung Mount. It's from a Samsung SR4000 35mm camera made in the mid 90's.

100% agree

Mount for pentax K has the contacts on the base of the lens not insude the bayonet

It might be for their ILC camera, not an SLR

If you check the pictures. The mount is not Pentax mount AF, the electrical contacts looks like they are for the new mount of the NX10 family.
Check the camera mount here:
Samsung NX10 Hands on Preview: 6. Body & Design: Digital Photography Review

I hope this help.

sent him a message advising that if that was the mount it could not be a Pentax compatible lens we'll see what happens with the listing (apparently someone else local also saw it as there is another thread i didn't see

as an aside i emailed the poster but the ad is still up with the wrong info 2 days later (and no response)
Some poor sap who doesn't know better is going to buy it and be out a lot of money as this has little to no value unless you have the samsung SLR )which probably came with one of these)
