It was the fact that aperture can be controlled on the camera body in the A series that attracted me. Perhaps I should be more concerned about quality of images produce, but at this point I only have others' experience to draw on regarding that.

I'm a bit unclear about K as a lens series versus K as a type of lens mount. Until this thread I assumed all -- or almost all -- Pentax lenses were K lenses. I gather now they are distinct classifications. However, as a reference to a lens series, I think I have yet to encounter a K lens.
