Question from a total n00b ?

I have just got some lenses for fre from an old Pentax MG film camera, lenses are listed below.

1 x Zelar Auto zoom 1:5.5 f=80~200mm No. 820817

1 x SMC Pentax-M 1:1.7 50mm 6560327 Asahi Opt.Co.Japan

1 x Sigma mini-wide 1:2.8 f=28mm multi-coated some greek symbol-390966

Can any of these be used on my k100d?
I have been told the 50mm prime works well but of course will be manual focus.

Any input would be appreciated.

No idea about the Zelar but all K mount lenses will work on your K100D, just no AF and you will need to meter in manual mode stoped down ( consult your manual about this )
