using old lens with a digital slr camera

I would like to know if my old lens for my ZX-50 camera would work on a new digital slr camera. I have a Promaster AF 28 - 80 mm lens and a Tamron AF 100 - 300 mm lens.

As they are both AF lenses you can ignore the first sticky item in Beginner's Corner. The first sticky thread in Beginner's Corner is about using old manual focus lenses without automatic aperture.

To answer your question, they will work just fine on any Pentax DSLR.
