that's going to depend on the lens itself and what mount it has - my guess is that it will be either an M42 or an Exacta mount, either of which will require an adapter...

If it is M42 mount, adapting is straight forward. Pentax made such an adapter. There are many third party ones available as well.

Exacta mount can be done but it is a long story. The topic has been discussed here before, I believe. Look around.

Best post a picture of the actual lens you are interested in, showing the current mount. As it stands, unless it's already been modified, it's unlikely any Carl Zeiss Sonnar will fit your K1 directly. As to whether it can be easily adapted, will depend on what it's designed to fit at the moment.
