In general yes, every Pentax branded lens that fit the ME fits the new Pentax DSLRs.

There are incompatibilities with third party lenses, but a majority will be fine. For example the Ricoh pin that can get stuck in the AF drive or the oversized aperture lever shield often found on Vivitar lenses that hits the mirror box and won't allow them to be mounted. These are easily handled though, that pin can be removed and the shield can be removed or modified.

Yes to both.

A lenses and newer meter without limitations. Older (M&K) lenses require stop-down metering:
