Curious-manual lenses with K100D


I just purchased an NOS K100D and was wondering how difficult it is to use older K-mount lenses with this camera. I have one that is old, no A on the aperture ring so it's totally manual. Are the results as good, the same or...?

Keep in mind I'm coming off a Panasonic Superzoom P&S and have had very little experience with an SLR other than the Nikon D3000 I bought for my better half.

All opinions/experience welcome!
