Pentax M42 screwmount lenses on Exakta Twin TL Body

Hi, so I was given an Exacta Twin TL 42 35mm camera by a friend and it came with an Exactar 50mm F1.7 lens, which I would like to replace. The body has an M42 screwmount and I'm wondering if the Pentax M42 screwmount lenses will work, or encounter any problems. Thanks!

Your Exakta (probably made by Cosina in the early 1970s) should be compatible with most M42 lenses, including Pentax M42 Takumars.
