a new acquisition for my old set

Hello,
I want to buy K1, but I want to ask you, how well this new K1would work with my old lens set - see in profile? For now, my favorite are 31, 43, 300* and tamron 70-200/2.8, but occasionally I lose my time with manual lens.

Thank you in advance!

The 31 and 43 should work fine as they are FF lenses. The 300* is OK also, although it is a DA lens. The Tamron will probably only work in the APS-C or square modes on the K-1 as Tamron does not make any FF lenses for Pentax yet, that I know of (older Tamron lenses being an exception). See the following link for more information.

If your Tamron 70-200 is designated Di, as in Tamron 70-200mm F2.8 Di LD (IF) Macro, it is made for FF and is made in Pentax mount.

Yes, two weeks after you purchase your K-1! It seems to work that way with me!

Once or twice a year in each Distributor market (e.g. Black Friday Deals in USA) K-1 will be packaged with a lens, at a discount for the package, but the savings will be tied to the lens, not the K-1.
