$5 will get you a couple of gallons of gas, or a Starbucks and the Sunday paper, or a Sears multicoated 135mm f/2.8 lens. Not bad for $5!

Architectural detail on the Strand in Galveston, taken with the Sears 135 f/2.8 (purchased used for $5).

Some Sears lenses have a different K (Ricoh) mount and have a tendency to get stuck on Pentax DSLR's, so make sure the rear of the lens looks like Pentax brand lenses.

Thanks for the tip. This one apparently is okay since I've put it on and taken it off several times without problem. However, do you have a picture of a Ricoh mount and a Pentax mount? I'd like to know what to look for. I knew about this when I bought my handful of used lenses at the Houston Camera Show, but I wasn't really sure how to tell.

I've always wondered how to quickly tell a Pentax bayonet-mount apart from all the other bayonet-mounts.

It's not always easy. Some Nikon mounts "fit" the K mount, but usually they will have that "metal thing" on top. Read that some of the Nikons are useable on the Pentax bodies (stop down metering of course)
Do believe there are other similar to k mount mounts...
Ricoh liscensed the K mount so it is a true k mount with the added troublesome Ricoh pin . Most will be listed as R/K, K/R, pKR or some such marking. Most pins are easily removed and some are just a ball type that is non offensive.
