Are K-r and K-5 lens interchangeable.

I have currently got a K-r love it but I'm looking to move up to K-5 but was wondering if my lens to the K-r would work with the K-5 until I find what I want to put on the K-5. Bobby

No issue at all, any lens you can use on the K-r you can use identically on the K-5 later.

YES. All Pentax K-mount bayonnet can be mounted indifferently on K-r, K-x, K-7, K-5, K-20d, ....

This is a great strength of the Pentax offer. Your lenses are compatible with so many Pentax camera model. Similarly, you can mount a very wide range of lenses on your camera.


For older lenses with screwmount, see the threads:

Pentax are renowned for their lens interchangeability, one of their best features IMHO.

The Pentax K-mount was brought out in like the late 70s, so you got a whole 30 years worth of lenses that will fit any pentax model.
