Any of them will work on a Pentax DSLR. If they fit the ME Super without an adapter, i.e., screwmount, they'll all fit.

I keep wishing I had kept the 50mm f2.0 that was on my ME Super when I divested myself of it.

Not quite.
All original Pentax lenses will, and most 3rd party ones, too.

However, there are 2 groups of lenses which were alright with the ME Super, but should be used with Pentax AF cameras (SLR and DSLR) only after some minor surgery:
  • Some Ricoh K-mount lenses, and 3rd party lenses designed for the Ricoh version of the K-mount or dual Pentax/Ricoh use. These MAY have a pin for aperture control of Ricoh SLRs which could lock into the AF screw drive of Pentax AF bodies, making it impossible to remove the lens.
  • 3rd party lenses with an extended protection flange for the aperture actuator (compared to original Pentax lenses). This may prevent attaching on K-mount bodies either supporting Power Zoom, or lenses with built-in AF motor.
Both these would mostly be lenses offered before Pentax started with the Z / PZ film body series. You can find multiple threads in this forum and elsewhere on the web, how to make these lenses working. It's not difficult.

Well, he didn't say which brands he has, I assumed he meant Pentax therefore my statement is correct.
