Yes, the K mount 28mm f2.8 will work very nicely on either the Samsung GX1-L or a new Pentax. It works the same as any manual K-mount lens - you use M mode, set the aperture on the lens, push the AE-L button (green button on other models like the K10 and K20) to let the camera temporarily stop down the lens and meter, then focus and shoot (or focus first). The 28mm is very well thought of and $35 is a good deal for one in excellent condition. It's more desirable than my 24mm f2.8 because it's closer to being a "normal" lens. Both are very sharp.
