K10D + Zeiss ZK lenses

There are several Zeiss lenses that have just become available in the Pentax mount (ZK).

Does anyone have experience using these lenses?

I think that they are the same lenses that are available in the Nikon mount (ZF).

Thanks.

The lens are all the same for the Nikon, Pentax K, or Pentax screwmount. Its just a couple models are not available on the screwmount.

The downside for some people is that the Zeiss lens are manual focus only. I only heard from one other guy that the 50mm from zeiss was about as sharp as his Nikon 50/1.4, but lacking the autofocus. *shrug*

In any case the ZF, ZK, ZM lens are made by Cosina-Voigtlander for Zeiss.
