help ! Pentax 100 help!

UPDATE MODEL # IS K 1000 35MM
greetings,
1st I know absolutely nothing about photography.
When I was a much younger GI , I had a pentax K1000 camera ( not 100% sure correct model number )
I had about 3 or 4 different lenses to fit that camera. ( would- will- able to ) use these lenses on a modern digital camera ?

if so or not please point me in the right direction

I do not think there was ever a '100' model. There was a k1000 though. Most likely your lenses will work with modern Pentax cameras within the limitations of the lenses. For example if they are manual focus they will still be manual on a new camera.

List out the full description of the lenses and we can tell you for sure and if they are worth the trouble. They should say something like "Pentax-A 50mm f 1:2" The full description is needed as many models have similar names.

Your K1000 lenses will work on a modern Pentax DSLR like the K-5, K-R, etc. However they will not be 'AUTOMATIC' lenses ( you will have to set the camera to manual mode and focus the lens yourself and you will have to set the exposure by pressing the green button on the camera ). Depending on what lenses you have, they could be very good. Post back and list what you have. You will get comments about the quality of your lenses.

You can't be a moron - after all, you found this site! As posted, the lenses will work fine, in facts lots of us use old lenses and manual mode. Don't be afraid to ask any questions, most of us don't bite and the few who do have had their shots.
