using new on old

Recently purchase a K10, the DA 55-300 and DA 16-45, and 360 flash

Also have from before a PZ-1 and the PENTAX smc28-105 FA1:4-5.6 power zoom and the PENTAX SMC 100-300 FA 1:4-5.6 power zoom, and 500 flash.

I plan to keep the PZ-1 as a " incase camera" But should I keep the flash and lenses that I was using with it, or can I use the new lenses and flash on it and sell the older ones.

Only problem I am having is getting use to manual zoom after using the power zoom for 15+ years.

Thanks

You can use the new flash on the PZ-1 but not the new lenses. The DA lenses are designed to work with the smaller digital sensor. The 55-300 may not vignette on film (has anyone tried this yet?) but the 16-45 does. The power zooms will work just fine on your K10D but the 500 will only fire at full power or in manual. If you want to keep the film body as a backup, I would keep at least the lenses. You could probably get rid of the flash but it is a more powerful and flexible unit on the film body than the 360. I would keep it all if I were you, but that's just me!
