Are these lenses compatible with K100D Super?

I don't understand all the lenses lettering, and what fits with what - not to mention there is never anywhere on the sites that says what cameras they are compatible with...

But I have a K100D Super right now - are these lenses compatible?

Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 XR Di-II LD: Tamron | 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di-II LD Aspherical [IF] | AF016P-700

Sigma 18-50 f/2.8 EX DC: Sigma | 18-50mm f/2.8 EX DC Macro Lens for Pentax | 581109 | B&H

Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 Di LD: Tamron | 70-200mm f/2.8 Di LD (IF) Macro AF Lens | AF001P-700

Thanks for the help camera sleuths!

they all work

LD, Low Dispersion, IF Internal Focus, DC ~ something to the effect of Digital Camera, i.e. for crop sensor cameras, Di - Tamron Digital Coating, EX is like the higher grade of Sigma lenses

sounds great.
I saw the Di-II thing on the first Tamron, and there was a disclaimer about something about the sensors or whatever, and i was just like...ahh buuhhhh.

ok, so, time to sell a bunch of DVDs and hoard christmas money.
Check!

Di-II means APS-C frame only. K100D super is APS-C.
BTW, I am talking about the sensor size.

Dan as long as they are K mount (or M42 for older lenses which need the adapter) they'll work.
