Pentax K30 query

Evening everyone,

My Pentax K100d Super is currently in the works, and I'm looking into getting a new body for my Pentax K-mount lenses. The question I have is:

Will my lenses (18-55mm bog standard kit lens and 50-200mm lens) fit and work properly with the K30? I'm not too sure whether the auto-focus option will work or not. Anyone able to confirm?

Cheers,
Jack

Yes, it will without a doubt. But since you want the weathersealed K30 you also might wanna replace the 18-55 for the 18-55WR. It has better optics and it`s also sealed.

They will. You can use basically any autofocus Pentax lens made since forever on a K-30 without issue.

I used an FA28-90 on my K-x and that lens was the kit for a 1999 film camera. When I get the K-30 (or K-01, or K-5II...) come winter, that lens will find a home on that camera as well. Its my go-to 'family snapshot' lens when I'm not intending to get all artsy with my primes.

Thank you very much guys for your speedy responses. Glad they will work well with the K30.

I shall continue my reading into K30 reviews.
