That sounds quite amazing. I figured I'd be happy if my new camera let me use the old lenses, let alone actively help me use them. I have no trouble being the motor.

Will I have to buy some kind of adapter to use my K mount lenses on the KAF-3 mount on the K-30?

No adapter is required, it's the same K-mount - updated with electronic contacts and AF support.

With K/M lenses, the metering is semi-automatic; you'd have to press the green button - the camera will momentarily close the aperture in order take a meter reading. OTOH, you'll gain stabilization.
