What's a K mount lens

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Konica 35mm SLRs : One Thread


I have a 24mm Promaster Konica lens I'm selling and somebody wishes to know if it is a K mount lens. My lens fits my FT1 and has AE mode on the aperature ring. Is it a K mount lens? I guess I need a lesson on mount terminology for Konica lenses. I have seen the terms K mount, F mount, K/AR mount used. What gives with each term.
