What kind of lens options do you have with the K3? Will any bayonet mount lens work or does it have to be m42?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

M42 is a screw mount, not bayonet. K3s come with either a bayonet mount OR an M42 mount. If the mount is threaded, it will take any M42 mount lens.

If you search the forums on one of the two options, you should be able to find suggestions. There have been threads about the Peleng (M42), for example. Second hand M42 mount lenses aren't hard to come by, but high quality, true wide angles are on the pricey side. Bayonet mounts I haven't researched, since my K3 was a screw mount.
