Lens info for new member

I've just got myself a K1000 with a 1.7 M lens and I'm very pleased with it.
While looking at other lenses I've noticed different letters, like M and PK in the description. Could somebody please tell me what these letters signify.

The M stands for the series lens: M, A, F, FA, FA-J, DA etc. Each series had certain features. M series lenses are completely manual. Here is a link to the site database that has reviews and info on the lenses:

Pentax Lens Review Database - Pentax K-Mount Lenses

PK is the designation of the mount, in this case Pentax K-Mount. Here is a great link that was given to me by another forum member:

Pentax Lenses Explained

Hope that helps.
