Welcome to the Forums.
They should. I assume your lenses have an A setting having been used on those 2 cameras.You may need to set the k-5 to allow an aperture ring if you wish to use them on anything other than A setting, or if you by chance you have M lenses. I don't have a k-5 but assume you would need to allow it as I did my DL. Your owners manual should describe how .
