Will DFA 150-450mm lens work on a K5?

I just picked up a mint condition DFA 150-450mm lens for a grand out the door at one of my local pawn shops after patiently waiting and watching it for five months. It works great on my K3 but want to know if it will work on my K5, it is up do date on firmware.

It will work just fine. The only limitation is you won't get the full functionality of the AF buttons on the lens body, AFAIK.

Ya about that.....I read the manual on those buttons, don't think I will ever use those anyways, if I do, it will be on the K3. I don't really understand them and the instructions are a bit vague.....
