Need help with lens adaptability - please

Hi, as i am a newbie could anyone help me find out if the following would be acceptable and attach to my Pentax *ist DS?

LENS: Vivitar ser1 zoom 70-210mm 1:3.5 with Macro + IR filter & lens cap (67mm)

LENS: Vivitar Wide Angle 28mm 1:2.8 with polarising filter & lenscap (49mm)

DOUBLER: Pentax auto tele converter 2X + lenscap + leather case

FLASH: Vivitar ZOOM Thyristor SMS 40D + 4 coloured filters

I have seen these available for sale and need to know within the next couple of hours if they are ok to add to my setup, Thanx for your time guys.

Best regards, Lee

If all are pentax mounts, the only thing to look out for is that there is, or may be a protective shield over the apature activating lever of the series 1 lens that can interfere with the mount. There are lots of postings on how to resolve this. I had to cut mine a little to make it fit my DSLRs.

I am not sure anout the flash, and whether it supports pentax TTL.
