Answer:
After testing various old lenses lenses even back to M42 screwmount with K adapter, and also using K adapters to the new Sony full frame cameras (because Pentax does not have FF and we wanted to see edge sharpness) we have determined that for the most part any lens that was a good lens before is still a good lens even … see more After testing various old lenses lenses even back to M42 screwmount with K adapter, and also using K adapters to the new Sony full frame cameras (because Pentax does not have FF and we wanted to see edge sharpness) we have determined that for the most part any lens that was a good lens before is still a good lens even on the new sensors.
Something else to consider is that with all the old 35mm lenses you are only using an APSC sized crop from the middle of the full frame light projection from the lens, which is the sharpest, highest quality part of any lens.
From a compatibility standpoint any lens ever made that was intended for a Pentax 35mm camera (including the M42 lenses with a K adapter) will work on this camera though you have to meter light differently (research green button metering) with any lens that does not have the "A" aperture setting (Pentax A, FA, and DA lenses meter normally). The in body shake reduction means any old lens will also benefit from modern shake reduction, but if its a manual focus lens you will have to tell the camera when you turn it on what the focal length is so it knows how much shaking to compensate for, or turn shake reduction off. This is fine for primes however for a zoom lens you either have to change it when you change zoom, pick a middle number as a compromise if its a short zoom range, or just turn it off. With an auto focus lens like the FA or DA series it determines that by itself. see less

Answer:
I shoot fixed focal length prime lenses, but you might want to consider one of the zoom lenses unless you don't mind carrying around multiple lenses. The best long distance sports and bird lens by far is the 300mm. For candids it depends. Generally I like 35mm to 70mm. And for the best portraits, the 77 mm is well rega… see more I shoot fixed focal length prime lenses, but you might want to consider one of the zoom lenses unless you don't mind carrying around multiple lenses. The best long distance sports and bird lens by far is the 300mm. For candids it depends. Generally I like 35mm to 70mm. And for the best portraits, the 77 mm is well regarded. I don't have the 77, but my favorite lenses that I own for candid are the 35mm limited and the old 50mm 1.4. Occasionally the wider lenses are better for candids if you want the context included in the photo. Wider lenses are easier to aim in spur of moment and also easier to focus. The longer ones have more beautiful bokeh (out of focus area) see less

Answer:
I have shot two weddings with this camera now. There have been no problems. the camera is fantastic and the images are amazing. Even my DA lenses focus better at low light. The 50-135mm f2.8 is a great wedding lens with the K3 body.

Answer:
I use all the "K" mount lenses that I've acquired since my "ME Super" days.
They all work, but not with "automatic" settings.
