    Well done for keeping your film Pentax lenses !
    I have also many:I use a lot on my Pentax K10D : you have to go into the digital CUSTOM Menu, scroll down to the very bottom to find 'Aperture Prohibited or Allowed' and click on Allowed. Then your lenses will all work, manual focus,only Manual Exposure or AV (Aperture Priorty) exposure. The metering will be only centre-weighted ( same as on the ME Super anyway). On the 'A' series lenses you can set it to the 'A' position and use the digital wheel to change f stops; on the 'M' series lenses you just choose the aperture as normal on your film cameras on the aperture ring. I find in the K10D I have to give MORE exposure by using the compensation device to give about half a stop more. (use the 'Digital Preview' lever to see an exposure, and adjust- it doesn't go on the memory card)

    Thanks guys thats just what I wanted to hear, I can live with manual focus, and I tend to use manual exposure anyway, so no problems there.
    Thanks for the quick helpfull advice! Wayne
