K mount manual lenses need no adapter. Be sure to set the camera for using aperture ring.

You can use some others need an adaptor

Any of the Kmount M or A pentax lenses can be used with no adaptor. There are third party lenses with K mounts also that can be used.

Only the older M42 screwmount lenses need and M42 to Kmount adaptor... but many of my favorite lenses are the old M42 lenses. So dont rule them out just because you need to get one adaptor... many of those lenses are cheap and beautiful. With incredible results.
