Samsung lens with K-7 / K-X lens correction - Anyone tried it to know if it works?

Just wondering if the rebadged Samsung lenses work with the in body correction feature of the new bodies? Hopefully someone has tried it?

Thank you

I'm bumping this old thread because I basically have the same question. I'm considering a second hand Samsung K-mount lens at the moment.

Can someone with a Samsung lens please try to mount it on their Pentax DSLR and check whether the lens corrections are available or disabled? Please?

So... tried this with a D-XENON 18-55 and 50-200 on my K-5 and both offered lens correction. My Pentax FA-35 doesn't show them, suggesting those Samsung lenses are supported.

Whether this will be the same on K-7, I can't say, so may not be much help.

DA/DFA rebadged lenses should support correction, just not the 35mm.

FWIW, the optical corrections in software like DxO Optics Pro treat the Samsung lenses the same as the Pentax lenses.
