Will this auto focus with K-5?

I am interested to buy a K-5 from a private owner that comes with these lenses: SMC Pentax-FA 1:3.5-4.7 28-80mm lens (no lens cap) and SMC Pentax-F 1:4.7-5.6 80-200mm lens.
I wonder if the auto focus feature of the K-5 will work with it? Anything else I should know about them? I assume it fits since he is selling them together. Or does it need an adaptor?
