Old lenses with K10D

I have a Pentax MX 25 yrs old with the following lenses SMC Pentax-M 1:1.4 50mm, Osawa 1:2.8 F=28mm and Osawa 1:4.5 80-200mm. Can anyone tell me if these lenses will work with the Pentax K10D? Will I need to use any type of adapter? PLEASE HELP!!!

If they fit your MX, then they will fit K10D and work fine. Or course manual focus. If they have "A" position on their aperture ring, then just set it to A, set camera to Av mode, choose preferred aperture on camera and the camera will do the rest for you - i.e. choose proper exposure. Pentax is GREAT in using old lenses. Better then any rival in DSLR market.

If they DON'T have the "A" on the aperture ring, you will have to go into the custom menu, and look for allow aperture ring < or something like that > and set it to "allowed" then you just set your aperture, hit the "green button" to meter, and shoot to your hearts content. You need to be in manual mode to do this though
