Does the K-5IIs work with screw drive AF lenses?

Most of my lenses are the old screw drive models. Does the K-5IIs work with screw drive AF lenses?

Thanks

With the exception of the beginner cameras, they work with AF-I lenses actually.

I was told the early camera don't work with the ultra sonic AF lenses. I thought I also heard the newest Pentax cams didn't work with screwdrive lenses. Just hard to keep up with all the changes. Want to make sure before I pull the trigger.

The *istD, DS, DL, & K110D don't work with SDM. And of course none of the film SLRs. But all Pentax AF SLRs have a screw drive, with the exception of the ME F from 1983.
