Not quite sure what discussion to post my question on.

From my vintage SLR Pentax, Spotmatic II camera I have an assortment of lenses such as Super-Multi-Coated TAKUMAR 1:3.5/135, 1:3.5/35 & 1:3.5/50.
Can anyone help me with this question, I would like to purchase a new digital Pentax camera and want to know if these lenses can be used. They are the threaded style lens mounts.

Thank you

Welcome to the forum. Quick answer - all k-mount lenses will work in manual mode on Pentax DSLR's and M42 screw mounts will require an adaptor. Please take a look in the lens forum for lots of information.
