No difference other than the mount: Zenitar-M (M42), Zenitar-N (Nikon AIS), Zenitar-K (Pentax K). If you use only a (modern) Pentax the Zenitar-K is the obvious choice, but if you want the ability to use it on many cameras (with suitable adapters) the Zenitar-M is a good choice.

Be aware that the Zenitar-M has no manual/auto aperture switch, so it won't be able to be stopped down if you use it on a Pentax with an unmodified M42 adapter.
