Hi there,
While you can safely guess from the lens description ...something-A or -M or the like if it's fully manual, has a A setting or autofocus IF you have a Pentax lense...

this is quite hard for non-Pentax brands. You know all the older PK-?? lenses (not M42) that are offered used.

Where are the good websites to look for these informations (like Bjoldar Dimitrovs or Stans site)?

Ebay photographs won't show the right information in many cases and sellers don't know what stuff they got, too.

You got a good site? Post here!

Older non manual lenses were often marked "Auto" for automatic exposure (not autofocus). Later ones dropped the designation.
