Yes, it will work. Lots of K-x owners have reviewed it here:

Check this link about using old manual lenses on the Pentax DSLRs....some changes in the menu have to be made before they will function properly..

There is this website about camera sensors...
I have the K-x and did I say its half the price f the 50D or K7

DxOMark - Compare sensors

Its an awesome site by the way...
