I have a Pentax K-5IIS and use it with a Pentax 16-85. There are multiple lens/camera combinations that you can use that are available from Pentax. The K-mount is what most Pentax cameras have, which is used by most Pentax lenses. There is a selection of both Pentax cameras and lenses that are compatible with each other.

The following web address is to the selection of Pentax products. Most are usually available on Amazon also, along with B and H, and Adorama.

Hi burningbrush. Welcome to the Pentax forums. If you look at the " user photo galleries " at landscape, you can see not only the photographs, but the EXIF data says what camera and lens was used. Good luck.

Welcome aboard! Most of the camera bodies will suit you well. After that lenses are all personal preference.
I enjoy the DA21mm for that use, it's a fun little lens. The Sigma 8-16 is also an interesting lens to investigate.
