The focus confirm thing is irrelevant with Pentax. You have to worry about that with a Canon camera, but not with Pentax.

As Mike says, the auto-focus system will provide focus confirm for any lens that is mounted on the camera.

I have some old lenses from M42 days. Can anyone tell me please if I can get a decent Adaptor to mount themn on my K-5 IIs and be able to adjust focus, confirm focus, etc.?

Focus confirmation is done in the camera, not the lens. The M42 adapter is a simple thing on a Pentax.

Pentax M42 adaptor|M42 lens| Pentax K

Something like this is all you need, and I use this brand with no problems at all.

Just use the genuine Pentax M42 to K mount adapter. There a a good number of cheapo junky ones out there. I would avoid them. You pay for wut yo getz. My 2 cents
