Educate me on Pentax

I am researching a new system and I accidentally came across Pentax. I know a lot about Sony, Nikon, and canon. The specs of the k3 and features appear to be much better than the other systems. Here's some questions.

what mount is for the k3? So I can research lenses.

what mount for the K1?

how well does the astrotracer work?

how good is the weather seal? Can I shoot in the rain or snow?

cost of lenses vs Nikon and canon?

3rd party support for either mount?

why are these cameras so inexpensive compared to competitors?

any downsides to the two systems u notice from use?

i know I can and I will research a lot of this but I feel the best feedback is from real users so thanks for any input!!

Pentax K-1
