50mm F1.4 lens would it work with DSLR?

I have an older K1000 film SLR that had a wonderful prime lens. Would it work with my K200d?

Welcome to the forum, GWTWTOO!

Most certainly it will, I don't have that body, but if it has a K mount, the lens will fit right in, only in manual mode which it is anyway. And even if it had the screw mount it will fit with an proper adapter.

If you tell exactly which lens it is, I am sure someone here will also report how it renders in newer DSLR Pentaxes.

And another link on getting Manual lenses to work on Pentax DSLRs:

K100D (Super) Pictorial guide to using manual lenses [imgs]: Pentax SLR Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review

This is for the K100D Super but it should be fairly similar to the K200D

I recently got an even older version, being a screwmount lens made in 1965.
It presently spends more time on my camera than anything else, and has given me several very impressive photographs.

to the first few I got with it, all taken at f1.4 just to give you an idea what they can be like wide open.
