Is the lens from K2 compatible with K-5

Har sen många år tillbaka en Ashai Pentax K2. Har som tillbehör olika objektiv, mellanringar, bälg enhet och liknande. Har läst mycket om K-5 och tänker köpa en. Undrar om objektiven och tillbehör av K2 kan användas tillsammans med K-5?

Yes, all the lenses are compatible. See here for a list of those lenses: Pentax Reviews - Pentax Lens Reviews & Pentax Lens Database

And here how to use them:

All Pentax branded lenses are completely compatible.

A few third party lenses have issues. If the lens mount says KA/R, it may have the dreaded "Ricoh Pin". Some, but not all, Vivitar lenses have a metal shield that guards the aperture lever, that is too long and will not allow the lens to mount properly.

Both of these problems are fairly uncommon and relatively easy to mitigate. There are many threads on both.
