K-x assistance

Hi guy's,
After a bit of advise from other sites. I'm looking at the Pentax K-x, I have several Pentax lenses from older cameras P30 and MZ50. They are:
SMC Pentax A 1:3.5~4.5 35~70mm.
Sigma 1:4.5~5.6 75~300mm.
SMC Pentax F 1:4~5.6 35~80mm.

Are these compatible with the K-x and are they of good quality.

I am looking at purchasing the K-x due to good reviews and because I already have these older lenses.

Any advise welcome

Yes, they are all compatible. The F lens isn't the sharpest tool in the shed, but the others should be able to produce fine images. You might want to check out these respective entries in our lens review database for details:

Pentax Lens Review and Specification Database - 35-70mm F3.5-4.5
Pentax Lens Review and Specification Database - 35-80mm F4-5.6

It doesn't look like the Sigma is in our DB yet (you can add it if you'd like), but from what I've heard it's a good lens.
