lens compatability

I have down loaded the features and functions available on Pentax digital slrs with all the series of pentax lenses.
Pentax Lens/Camera Compatibility - Quick Guide
Does anyone have links to how other brands function on a Pentax digital.
Thank You

the lens must have a Pentax K-Mount
there are some third party lens makers today such as Sigma and Tamron. back in the day when pentax was more popular there were even more.

There are also manual Carl-Zeiss, new Russian manufactured K-mount lenses (KMZ factory and maybe some other)

Beware that some of the Ricoh K/R mount lenses have a pin on them that MAY get stuck on your Pentax DSLR. And you can also use the old M42 screw mount lenses with an adapter. I am getting hooked on these screw mount lenses, lots of fun to use, and their build quality is second to none !!
