question

I see this is for a mirrorless camera, but a KAF mount. Will it work with my K-3II? Thanks Jeremy
Asked by: Jeremy N.
This answer a little late. It works for K-5, K-3, and K-1 DSLR.

Please clarify, both in the reviews and Q&A users ...

Please clarify, both in the reviews and Q&A users have said they have used this lens on aps dsrl´s, nevertheless staff members said it´s only good for mirrorless cameras. I am confused, are we talking about two different 40mm lenses? Or it is intended for the mirroless K-01 but still works on a dslr? I intend to use it with a Pentax K10d. Thanks for your time.
Asked by: Gustavo
Hi, this lens is compatible with the Pentax K10d.
