If it's a k-mount lens, then no. If it's a screwmount lens, see here: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-lens-articles/110657-how-use-manua...7-k-x-etc.html

Welcome to the Pentaxforums. Yes, you are going to need an adapter to use this lens with any Pentax DSLRs. You will need either Tamron PK/A or PK/M adapter. The former will give you all AE except auto-focus, the latter will be M mode with the green button for metering prior to releasing the shutter. The PK/A adapter will cost you about $75.00 to $100.00, PK/M will set you back about $30.00+. There is also a third option; buy a third party adapter for about $15.00 on eBay, which will give you stop down metering in Av mode.

Hope this helps,
