is there a way to know..

if some older lenses I have will work on my k10d? thought i saw somewhere that some sears lenses would work. was at my mothers house and grabbed my dad's old camera stuff. its a sears sa camera, i believe, with a 50 and what looks like a 135 lens, i believe the make-at least on one-is kalimar?

i doubt these are anything special, aside from some sentimental value for me, but if they would work, i wouldn't mind taking them for a walk.

Yes, they should work fine as long as they are "Pentax" mount, otherwise you will need a adapter. Will be manual lenses.

Do keep in mind that some old Sears and Ricoh K-mount lenses have an extra pin on the lens mount that will need to be removed, or the lens can get stuck on the camera. I know it has been discussed before on this forum, so you could do a search for info.
