Will this SONY lens work with this Samsunk camera?

I just bought this camera

Samsung GX-1L (rebadged Pentax *ist) DSLR kit for $228 at Ambient Weather

and was wondering if the SONY lens would work with it.

Sony 75-300mm f/4.5-5.6 Super-Telephoto Zoom Lens for $99.99 at Best Buy

Thanks

Nope, Sony cameras used to be Minolta, so the Minolta Maxxum lenses will work on Sony dSLRs, but you've gotta buy lenses made for the Pentax K-Mount (well... it's a big subject... I'll update this with a link to more info.)

Edit #1: I see that this was your first post - welcome to the forum ...
Edit #2: Here's a link to a recent discussion of which lenses will fit your Samsung (pentax k-mount).

Thanks for the quick reply. I was hoping it would work becaseu for $99 the price would have been right..I don't see your link though.

Thanks again

Yeah - my reply was so quick my link got dropped ... It's updated now in my last post. There's a Tamron 70-300mm which sells for about that and gets surprisingly good reviews in the database.
