Any Pentax bayonet mount lens will work in manual mode or in aperture priority.

I mention this because you mention mostly shooting landscapes; you aren't likely to care about the extra program modes made available by the A-type lenses.

How far West are you in Wales Attila?

If you're in Carmarthenshire, it may be worth popping in to Carmarthen Cameras (I've no 'interest' in the company, but have spent some of my hard-earned with them - they supplied my grotty old black MX and a 40mm f2.8 pancake lens for 80 with a 6 month warranty - not bad I thought).

Have a look Pentax manual Lenses | Pentax SLR Lenses | Carmarthen Camera Centre Ltd., Digital & Used Cameras & Accessories

the M135 f3.5 may not suit your needs, but at 35 it's a reasonable price for the claimed condition.

Any Pentax bayonet lens will work.
Even the ones for digital cameras in P mode!
