Updated list of KAF4 lenses

Is there a way to reference a list, going forward, of all KAF4 lenses?

I understand there are currently two; the new version of the 55-300, and the D FA* 50/1.4.

But obviously that list will grow over time. It would be nice to be able to easily reference at any time a complete list of KAF4 lenses.

The first section under "Key incompabilities" listed here seems to be exactly what you are looking for.

There is one exception:
The Pentax K-30 can be updated with the 1.10 firmware:
Running K-50 firmware on K-30 - PentaxForums.com
Then it is as much compatible with the KAF4 lenses as the K50 or K70

..........
The Pentax Camera Lens Compatibility Chart
On this list on your second link the K-30 is in the wrong place because with firmware 1.10, which is now even used
by the "officials", in this case Ricoh - Pentax Camera Repair | Authorized Service Center | Precision Camera


This 1.10 firmware can be downloaded here: LINK

The history of firmware 1.10 is well documented here:
Running K-50 firmware on K-30 - PentaxForums.com


If ever anybody wants to go back to an older K-30 firmware, this is to be done either by using PK-Tether (the original webside is down sadly)
or by "debug menu", which is done by downloading those 2 files and then:
1. Store those 2 files on a correct formated SD-card directly next to the SDIM-file
2. SD-card into K-30 but SD-carddoor stays open
3. Switch K30 ON and one is right there in the Development Menu1:
4. 4th row: command: UDS DAT CLEAR = o.k.!
5. K-30 switched OFF, SD card removed and delete those 2 files on SD card.
