Yes. You need an adapter, the Pentax one is recommended. Metering has to be done via stop down metering, typically in Av mode.

I don't think you could say that any camera is going to be free of repairs, you were pretty lucky but I'll bet you kept great care of your camera which really helps. The DSLRs probably do have more of a risk of things "breaking" because they have all of the electronics now in addition to the mechanical parts.

Your lenses should work on any Pentax DSLR, you'll need an adapter for the M42 lenses, they will be totally manual.
