Konica lens for Pentax?

There's an ad in our local bargain magazine for filters and lenses. They are quite a distance from town, so I don't want to go out there for nothing. Just wondering if Konica fits Pentax??

In addition to this, is there a site or resourse that might list compatible brand lenses in one place?

Pentax K mount

Konica slr lenses do not fit Pentax K mount camera bodies.

Here Rick Oleson ids several different slr lens mounts:
SLR Lens Mount Identification Guide

and here, Karen Nakamura has a chart of many, if not, all slr lenses with with the information for comparison: - Classic Cameras

The Pentax bayonet mount is known as PK mount. 3rd party lens makers include Tokina, Sigma, & Tamron.

I mounted one, once. Won't focus to infinity, but it will work, sort of.

Due to large differences in each respective system's registration distances (RD), mounting a Minolta lens on a Pentax body would sacrifice infinity focus. Since the Minolta has shorter RD, the only way to gain IF would be making the adjustment on the lens itself.
I tried quite a few different brands on my K10D, Nikon would yield the IF without adjustment. Contax needs little adjustment, and so does Olympus.

However, if you don't need IF (like portrait or macro shooting), then I think it's worth a try.
