Look through the lens database on this website, starting with the A-series lenses. You should be able to see all of the "*" lenses there (A, F, FA, and DA...and one M, the M* 300/4).

Pentax Lens Review Database - Pentax K-Mount Bayonet Lenses

Cheers!

Can't believe you missed our Lens Review Database! It has a listing of all Pentax lenses ever made, including the Star (*) lenses. The search feature makes finding them even easier!

This pages contains the FA* Primes (i.e. 24mm, 200mm Macro, 200mm, 300mm/2.8, 300mm/4.5, 400mm/5.6, 600mm/4): Pentax Lens Review Database - FA Series Primes

The zooms, such as 28-70mm/2.8, 80-200mm/2.8, and 250-600mm/5.6 are here: Pentax Lens Review Database - FA Series Zooms

They are all autofocus and fully support all Pentax DSLRs. They are full-frame lenses, although Pentax DSLRs are not.

Below is a listing the DA*'s: Pentax Lens Review Database - All Products

These feature SDM technology and are weather sealed. Image quality is arguably on par with the FA*'s. I guess the reviews speak for themselves- check them out!

Unfortunately, all FA*'s are now out of production. If you can find one used, it'll likely be very expensive- but may be well worth it!
