They are the 21mm, 40mm, and 70mm lenses. The 40mm has an older M40 version as well. That has an aperture ring, so can be used on older film bodies. DA lenses require auto aperture control.

SMC Pentax-DA 21mm F3.2 Limited Reviews - DA Prime Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database
SMC Pentax-DA 40mm F2.8 Limited Reviews - DA Prime Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database
SMC Pentax-DA 70mm F2.4 Limited Reviews - DA Prime Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

Watch for them used, they show up pretty frequently.
Thatís great! But by checking the specs they turn out to be APS-C produced. A bit worrying on a full frame, I guess....

The 40 and 70 are both usable on full frame, albeit with some vignetting wide open. That said, I would tend to gravitate towards the FA limiteds. They aren't exactly pancakes, but they are quite small, well made lenses. I own the 31 and 77 and they are both excellent.

True! I found another gem: the 43mm. Thatís an add on K1 will def appreciate.
Thanks for telling me about the 31 and 77. When going online I saw a staggering price difference between the US and Europe. 200 euro difference on the 43. We pull the high end....

Welcome to the forums.
Thank you 🙏
But you can! Itís not hard to take those shots. Just a bit of planning with a few kind people. Shooting the portrait is merely the end product and great fun to do. If you want to hear how we shot these, let me know and I will elaborate.
Have a great day!
