Thorough list of full frame k mount lenses?

Where online is the most thorough list of full frame k mount lenses from all manufacturers? I'm thinking of getting a Full Frame Pentax in a year or 2. Right now I have a K3. I would like to gather some full frame lenses both new and legacy glass from any manufacturer as deals show up over time.

In addition to ones listed there I know the Sigma 12-24 is FF compatible along with the Sigma 150-500 and 50-500.

If you are talking legacy glass, there is no thorough list, as there have been literally thousands of K-mount lenses released over the years.


If you filter allphotolenses.com by K mount, you get 950 results, and the list is by no means exhaustive.

And then there are all those M42 lenses,
from ancient legacy to the modern Zeiss industrials,
which can screw their way into a (preferably OEM) K-mount adapter..

For Pentax-brand the task is fairly easy. If one considers all the third-party lenses and all their variants and labeling, the list might be quite extensive.

The most thorough and complete list I know of is ...

PhotoPentax - For the sheer number of M42 and K mount lenses across all vendors, you really can not dismiss this site. Its current count and inventory stands at 6,081 lenses across 376 brands. Its also current to July 2014 (last update). Something happened to the site (went dark) - so, I have updated it with a link to its last capture by the wayback machine (Feb 2015).

Also, I put together a list of Pentax Lens Reference links awhile back ......

I put together a list of "FF lenses for the K-1 that can be bought new".

In the thread, you'll also find a link to an alternative list by beholder3 that is more inclusive (includes legacy lenses as well).
