F series lens on a K10D body

Quick query - will an SMC F 50mm function fully when mounted on my K10D body?

I understand it is an auto focus lens, though I'm not sure it will work with contemepory digital bodies.

Thanks in advance (1st post here!)

Yes, it will work just fine. I have a Takumar F 28-80 ( which is Identical to the Pentax F 28-80 Except for the coatings I am told. And it works just fine on my Pentax DSLR's

Here are a few shots I have taken with it...

Yes - no problem. F lenses will continue to have their AF/AE capabilities.
