Lens database

What about third party lenses which fit Pentax ??? The entire point
of the database is to create and maintain a database of millions of Pentax and
compatible optics ... a 'Third party' lens type would allow for those of us
with old glass to increase the size of the database and MAYBE increase
sales of Pentax gear ... when potential buyers see the enormous amount of
old glass available ... they may be inclined to get into DSLR ... the high
prices of NIKON AND CANON are DISCOURAGING ...

ALSO your database would be of interest to potential buyers who would
like to do a little bit of homework ...

in short, add a category of 'PENTAX COMPATIBLE' to the lens listings....
there are millions and millions of potential listings.

Seems like you may have missed the third-party section:
Pentax Lenses by Sigma, Tamron, Zeiss, and more - Reviews and Specification Database - Pentax Lens Review Database

Also, this page also allows you to do an advanced search for all (as far as we are aware) currently-available third-party lenses:
