I'm interested in this lens.
Is it a K mount, to fit on the Pentax K-5?
I'm new to Pentax cameras and want to make sure I don't buy something that won't fit! I've always had Minolta 35mm, and have the series 1 70-210, and a 28-85 series 1 for my Minolta and love them both.
Does the zoom feel smooth? Any marks on the lens, front or rear?
Any other info, or pictures you have would be appreciated.

Yes, it is Pentax K mount, and has been tested on my K-5. You can use it as M lens. It is easy to use because Pentax DSLR has Catch-in Focus function. The zoom is smooth, no visible markers on both front and rear elements.
Thanks for looking.

This is a wonderful deal! Snatch it. I can vouch for the lens as well, I have the same copy.
