Pentax K S1/Pentax 40mm xs compatibility

I have a K S1 and was thinking about getting the Pentax 40mm xs for it. However, there is a sign on Amazon that says that lens won't work on the K S1. They are both the same mount, as far as I know, so don't know why it wouldn't work. Any info/help will be appreciated. Would hate to buy the lens and then find out it wouldn't be compatible. Thank you.

You can ignore that - the "will it work" popup also says the 40XS doesn't work on the K-01 - the camera it was designed for. They've got something wrong with their code.

Edit: Or any other Pentax DSLR I tried. That is one seriously limited K-mount lens, if it won't work on K-mount cameras!

Thank you all for the help. I had the same thought that they just didn't know whereof they speak. Will order it now. Thanks again. Love Pentax Forums and you guys.

Will be good to hear how you get on with this. The K-S1 and 40XS should look pretty good together - the lightweight modern partnership.

Yes kentishrev -- I thought so too. Previously had the K 01 but really needed viewfinder so was thrilled when this came out. Should be great!
