Pentax LensType Values

The first number gives the series of the lens, and the second identifies the lens model. Note that newer series numbers may not always be properly identified by cameras running older firmware versions. Decimal values have been added to differentiate lenses which would otherwise have the same LensType, and are used by the Composite LensID tag when attempting to identify the specific lens model.
