Can I use these lenses

Hi guys,
Many years ago I bought a Canon T50 with these extra lenses. I'm wondering, with the correct Adaptall mounting system could I still use these on my new K5.
The lenses are as follows========
Tamron SP 60 - 300 1: 3.8-5.4 BBAR MC 62MM Macro 1:4 to 1:1.55
Tamron 1:2.5 28mm BBAR MC 49mm
Tamron SP F System 2x Tele-Converter BBAR MC

If I can use them, which mounting system should I buy.
I'm not 100% sure I will be able to use the Tele converter as it comes with a Canon mount permanently attached to it but let me know what you think. I was told by one camera store to just trade them in and buy a camera bag with the money he offered me but I don't think this fellas was looking after my best interests.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers Darren

If they're adaptall lenses, then they will work. They should be listed here:

Thanks Adam,
All the info I need is there, as I thought the dealer was trying to take me for a ride.

If the canon mounts 'come off' your lenses... They are indeed Adaptall...

Nah... Get a bag off 'a well known auction site'

Look up those lenses on 'said site' too to see how much they're going for... And check the lens database here as Adam suggests...
