Yes. You can use them in Manual or Av exposure mode, and manual focus mode.

You must first set "Using Aperture Ring" to "Permitted in the custom menu.

In M anual exposure mode you press the green button to set the shutter speed matching the aperture, but better bracket since the K10D isn't terribly accurate in setting the exposure with K lenses. The K100 and the *istD series are much better at this.
