Lens Compatability

Any Idea's on if I can use my K1000 compatible lenses with a K-X Digital SLR? I would expect some reduced functionality but I've got used to that.

Yes. They will work. Just look out for the Ricoh pin on third party A lenses.

Yes, you can use any k-mount (Pentax bayonet) lens on any Pentax dSLR. You do need to watch out for the dreaded "Ricoh pin" that is present on some PK-R lenses, which can cause the lens to get stuck on a dSLR body.
