Yes, the K mount or bayonet mount on your camera will accept any Pentax lens with that mount, or any third party lens with that mount. Even the very old Pentax lenses with the screw mount (AKA M42) will work with an adapter.

The only thing you need to know about using some of the older Pentax glass is not all offer the automatic features such as aperture control, and must be set manually - which to most of us is no big deal.

The lens you are looking at is fully compatible and offers the automatic features.

Thank you so much for your lightning quick response! I'm very grateful, and will buy one very soon. Thanks again!
