You can buy the m42 version and use an m42 adapter. The k-mount version will likely be more expensive and less plentiful.

They are optically identical. Just get what is most easily available to you.

I wouldn't get the m42 version. You need to step down for macro. Viewfinder gets very dark.

K mount version with the auto lever is easier to use for macro.

I don't know what those run for, but you can check the lens database and see what people have paid for them in the last 6 months. I think the M50 1.7 goes for around 50 dollars. I bought an M28 2.8 for 41 recently.
