Old Lens and K10D, K20D

I'm seriously considering a K10D Or K20D purchase and am curious about any problems I might have, if any, using my old K-mount and screwmount lens w/adapter.

With old M42 lenses the only thing to be aware of is that the aperture doesn't stop down automatically when you take a shot. So you'll get a pretty dark viewfinder if you are composing a shot at e.g. f/11, since you'll have to rotate the aperture ring to that setting in order to get an accurate meter reading.
