Asahi Pentax Lenses

From my vintage SLR Pentax, Spotmatic II camera I have an assortment of lenses such as Super-Multi-Coated TAKUMAR 1:3.5/135, 1:3.5/35 & 1:3.5/50.
Can anyone help me with this question, I would like to purchase a new digital Pentax camera and want to know if these lenses can be used. They are the threaded style lens mounts.

Thank you

Yes, they all work, lenses use on Spotmatic are screw mounted(m42). You only need an adapter to use on any Pentax Digital SLR. If you search for "m42 adapter" you should find alot of info

Best bet is get the Genuine Pentax adaptor ... you will have no problems at all with it like some aftermarket adaptors.

I love the old Taks ... they produce much better images than my newer lenses.
