K200D lenses with K5

Looking at buying the K5, can I use my lenses? Pretty sure I can. Thanks.

+1 Yes definitely, your lenses will work on K-x, K-r, K-7, K-5 (but not Q). The backward lens compatibility is a great strenght of the Pentax SLR line-up.

No, you can't use them. Send them all to me. And the K200D; you won't need it any more.

Maybe, depending on your lenscollection, you may want some new lenses to get the very best out of your K-5.

Well, not necessarily. Because of the cleanliness of images taken at low ISOs with the K-5, you can get away with more sharpening in post, which enable you to get sharper results from less sharp lenses. The big winner for me so far has been the DA 10-17. I struggled to get sharp results with that lens with the K200D. I've had no such problems with the K-5. It's breathed new life into that lens.
