Are the lenses Pentax lenses? If so, yes--you can use them.

Your flash should be fine, but be aware that many old flashes that were used for film cameras can damage the camera severely because of trigger voltage.

A lot of us use lenses from the 1950s ~ 1980s. The lenses I use every day are all 40~50 years old. I use flashes from the 1980s. My macro tubes are from the early 1960s. For many of us the ability to easily use old equipment on modern Pentax DSLRs was one of the primary reasons we chose Pentax.

Actually, all of the Pentax flashes are supposed be okay, but scroll down this list to look for your model:

Photo Strobe Trigger Voltages

Let us know if you see it there.
