What lenses specifically? If they're pentax lenses they should work 100% with the exception that power zoom won't work on some bodies.

Your lenses will work on any Pentax digital camera body. If the aperture ring has an A on it, auto exposure will work. If the lens is Auto focus, it will auto focus. Manual focus lenses can be manually focused, and take advantage of the sensors. If you have lenses without the A aperture setting (two of mine do not), you should read the sticky thread on how to use them properly at the top of the SLR Lens forum.

[Edit] The manual lens sticky is at the top of the Beginners Corner Q & A Forum
