DA 35mm f/2.4 AL

Good afternoon,

I have some question, my gear is K7 and I interest to use DA 35mm f/2.4 AL,
but I don't understand the type of mount of this lens.

Is this lens match with K7 (this lens can directly use) or need some mount (B type mount lens)?

Thank you...

The K7 (indeed all Pentax DLSR's) use the K mount (or variations of it). The DA 35 f/2.4 works on the K7 without any special adaptor.

Hey, welcome!
Modern Pentax cameras are K-mount.
Only exception is Pentax Q (very small camera) and Pentax 645D (very big camera).

All DA lenses are K-mount. All of the lenses listed here will work perfectly on your K-7:

Many other lenses will also work, as long as they are K-mount ("For Pentax")

Pentax has one of the largest legacy catalogues available to consumers without the need of any adapters. That makes thrift stores, yard sales & eBay into treasure tribes of great old glass to try.

Aye you can, just slap it on the front end and away you go.

Like everyone else is saying, simply put it and you're all set. I got the 35mm myself over the holidays for my K-r and liking so far.
