Yep, I know that one. However, K-mount on Pentax is not covered there, giving you just a list of lenses. Not reviewed by Pentax users on Pentax cameras.
Why do you want reviews from only Pentax users on only Pentax cameras? That site has reviews of many of those lenses, and the camera behind it makes little difference. Reviews of some of these lenses are so sparse you may only find a few scattered across the internet.

If you really just want a Pentax oriented list, you could add entries to our third party lenses database, and ask folks in the Soviet lens club to post some reviews.

Another good site is allphotolenses.com , it's mostly good for specifications, but some lenses have reviews posted (or at least ratings and examples).

Yes! Gold in many, many ways. The nice thing is that many of the entries include years of production and notes regarding production numbers. Pity that many of the FSU lenses were prototypes only (e.g. Mir-46 35/1.4 !!!)

Ahhh...here you go! This online database might give you what you want:

Lens Database

Filter by mount/brand and you should be able to compile a good list. Enjoy!


Steve
Perfect, thanks.
As for Kiev unique bayonet, so far I did not find anyone who changed that K-mount looking to true K-mount. Something tells me it might work. Maybe one day I waist 40 bucks and play around in the garage.

I seriously doubt it! Do some research on the camera it was designed to fit. Many mounts look similar, but about the only one that is even close to compatible with Pentax-K is Nikon-F and then only in non-AI lenses.

I'm looking for the list of old soviet lenses with K-mount only. The whole idea to buy Pentax DSLR was about using those lenses without adapter. While I found many reviews here on those lenses, I need to dig all the threads and reviews to figure out which mount they have.
Does K-mount old soviet (russian) lenses catalog exist?
Perhaps not a list of old ones, but kremlin optics has a list of current Russian lenses available in K. Mount

Night Vision Goggles, Rifle Scopes, Binoculars, Cameras, Lenses, Spotting Scopes, Magnifiers

Here's an old site that I find useful.

Communist Cameras

It has not been kept up and the list is not complete. The K-mount lenses are near the bottom.

Also, the lenses ending in "a" (37a, 11a, ...) have a T-mount that can be fitted with a K-mount flange.

Cheers,
Lou

Note that this is a fan site and not the official KMZ Web site. I have found it to be useful, but not authoritative.

Also keep in mind some m42 mount Soviet lenses are actually just a T2 mount w factory adapter to m42. Both my Tair 3phs 300mm f4.5 and Tair 11-a 135mm f2.8 are this mount type

It seems a bit incomplete.
Almaz and its prototype Lomo
Soviet and Russian Cameras - Almaz-103


Zenit-Auto (Automat), -14, -AM, -AM2, -APk
Zenit 122K
Zenit KM
Zenit 212K

Also Zenit APM is with K mount, if you find one (was made 15 only)

Sometimes it's easier to search ebay not by lenses, but cameras.

As for Kiev10 or 15, I will wait when I have an extra on PP to waste. So far I'm in spending galore for new Pentax addiction.

This site collected all official info about lenses and KMZ. Because of official site never had such info.

This site is the internet museum - this site has good reputation and trustworthy in Russia. It's built by formers office workers and engineers of KMZ.
ZENITcamera:

The site creator is the member of editorial staff of KMZ's scientific and technical journal
? ??????? ?????????

Here is official site now
????????? ?????, ??????, ???????????, ???????, ???

I know Soviet lenses very good, because it's my youth.
