pentax film lenses on digital k5

I have a PENTAX MZ 50 (film) and want to bui the k5 model. I wanna know if I can still use the lenses I have for the MZ 50 on the new k5. Is that possible? I've heard it's possible but the focus must be manually set.

Yes, you'll be able to use your autofocus or manual focus lenses. The FA series will be usable as-is, they're fully automatic. A-series or M-series, if you have those, will take a little more work.

What lenses do you have?

They should work without a problem.
All auto ... no manual focus ... unless you want to manual focus.
