You looking for a zoom or a fixed focal length lens? If you want a zoom, the Angenieux 12-120 goes up that far. They also make a 10-150 I believe. The quality of the Angenieux's can range pretty much all over the map, so it would be best to do a test before you buy or rent. I have a 12-120 that makes beautiful images, and I have seen ones just like it that make soft images. So it depends alot on the individual lens.

If you end up buying an Angenieux, I highly recommend Paul Duclos of Duclos Lenses for service. He will get the very best out of any Angenieux lens.

Is your K3 an M42 Screw mount or bayo version?

If it is M42 - look for M42 still lenses on Ebay.
