Finally cut the cord and joined the 21st Century...

I tearfully retired my beloved LX this week and bought a K20D. I have just about everything to learn all over again but let me start with one question: will my old AF280T flash work OK with the K20D?

Yes it will work fine in its "auto" mode and manual but not in PTTL mode. I find auto is sometimes more reliable than PTTL anyway unless you are using bounce flash.

However I would spring for a decent PTTL flash some time to make use of the wioreless capability. The Metz 48 is a very nice gun.
