Can lenses of SF10 SLR be used on *ist DL 6.1MP ?

Thank you so much for helping this newbie:

Is it possible to use the lenses (28-80 zoom, 70-200 zoom) that used to be on a Pentax SF10 SLR 35mm film camera body,

on this DSLR body: Pentax *ist DL 6.1MP

Are there other better options ?

Thanks again for your help.

I've also read that it's not worth it to use Pentax lenses on a Nikon body (let's say a Nikon D70) because the Nikon {....} is very narrow.

But how about the other way around:

I have a 50mm/1.8 Nikon AutoFocus lens, can I use it on the Pentax *ist DL 6.1MP body with a $15 Ebay's adapter ? What kind of adapter (keywords) should I search ?

All Pentax K-mount lenses can be used on the *ist DL body without a need for any adapter. All M42 mount lenses can be used with an adapter. All T-mount lenses can be used with an adapter. All Pentax 645 lenses can be used with an adapter.

Some old Nikon lenses mount right up, but which ones do is not documented very well.

edit: if any lens is used that doesn't have an "A" setting on the aperture ring, read the very first post in the Beginner's Q & A forum (it's a sticky).
