i have a K-50 body and am looking for some lenses. do compatibility codes with the letters K---, K-r, or K-x mean these lenses are compatible with all K series bodies? or does the code have to read specifically compatible with the K-50 body?thank you
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes- any Pentax lens with a K designation is compatible with the K-50 body, these letter designations just imply different series of lenses produced over time by Pentax.

Is this compatible to a ME Super (non digital)?
Asked by: Santiago
