Compitability of Pentax P30 SMC-A mount lenses on Pentax DSLR

I have one Pentax P30 camera with PENTAX-A50/F1.7, PENTAX-A ZOOM 28-80MM, PENTAX-A ZOOM 70-210MM lenses. I have thoroughly enjoyed my hobby with this FAMILY for last 12 years

Now as I want to switch over to Pentax DSLR, would like to know whether any of these Pentax-A type lenses can be used with Pentax DSLR camer body...?

Yes, they are. Sometimes there is a question about compatibility of non-A lenses on DSLR's.
But A-lenses should be problemlessly compatible.

You will not have autofocus, but you're not used to that either, with your P30 body...

Have fun!

Thread moved here so you'd get more info from forum members.

But as Syb has noted they will work just fine and in the "A" setting will work auto besides focus, but those were never autofocus lenses to begin with.
