What else would these fit?

I have a hanimex 75 - 300mm and tokina 70 - 210mm lenses which came with a pentax af200s body kindly given by my partners grandfather.
Would these fit any new dslr camera bodys be it pentax or other?

hanimex 75 - 300mm is a m42 screw mount lens that with a Pentax mount adapter K will fit any Pentax DSLR in manual mode. There are various adapters out there to allow this lens to be mounted on Canon EOS, Nikon, etc.

The tokina 70 - 210mm came in different mounts. This could be for Pentax, Nikon, etc, dependant on which camera model it was made for and is not interchangeable between manufacturers. If it's from a Pentax film camera, it can be used on Pentax DSLR's, but also in manual mode.

Thanks chalion. Here is some useful info from Pentax's Support Site;

Pentax K-mount, M-series and S (screw) mount lenses without auto-aperture control (an “A” setting on the aperture ring) can be used in Manual exposure mode using stop-down metering and manual focus. This is the exposure mode which will give accurate exposures when using these older lenses on our digital SLRs. If older lenses without an "A" setting on the aperture ring are used in Av (Aperture Priority) Mode, an exposure error may occur.
Note: Using Pentax S (screw) mount lenses on a Pentax DSLR requires the use of a Pentax Mount Adapter B.
