Pentax K-01 and Pentax DAL 1:4-5.6 18-50mm DC WR RE lens

Is the Pentax DAL 1:4-5.6 18-50mm DC WR RE lens compatible with the K-01?

Anybody used it? Any feedback? Was looking for a small zoom and this one came to mind.

Thanks,

JawaT

I think you can with K1 crop mode, found this: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4026114
Then it's probably not the best.

Yes, that RE lens was the kit lens with the K-S2.  It is fine on K-01.

The camera is KAF2 and the lens is KAF3.   I think there might be a problem with autofocus but what until someone says for sure.

Oups - I read "K1" instead of K-01 sorry

It is fine.  A KAF3 lens works on a KAF2 body.  I have this combo.  A KAF4 lens like a PLM lens would be a problem.
