Both of them do. Most people use the Remote Control F, but there's also the Remote Control WP that's waterproof if you need that. The latter has some additional controls also.

I had an F remote and it worked on the K-3. I lost it recently and opted for a Chinese remote from eBay. It was $.99 new shipped. It works just as well as the genuine F remote.

Plus there's the old wired remotes (same connector as most APS-C Canons) - including ones with (now redundant) interval timers and so forth.
