Welcome to the forum. BTW, you don't need to ask the same question twice, sometimes it takes a while to answer.

Yes it will work on your K-x.
Yes you could reverse it with a 49mm adapter but I'm not sure how good the results would be, reversing is usually best done with 50mm or wider.

Better than reversing the 135mm would be using a DCR-150 Macro conversion lens for D-SLR camera on the 135.

See this thread: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-slr-lens-discussion/74221-raynox-macro-club.html. It has examples of the DCR-150 and 250, including some with the 135mm and the DCR-150.

oh i see.... can you suggest a good 50mm lens that very good in quality but not very high in price?

The M50/1.7 is the standard choice, but browse this forum for ny of the dozens of other discussions on the topic for more recommendations.

Note these manual lens do work, but you need to know how - see the stick thread at the top of this forum for detailed isntructions on how to use manual lenses on a Pentax DSLR.
