All K-mount lenses will work

Yes, would be fun to get an old prime that is fast to play with. I saw some reasonable ones on eBay.

This may be something I have to research on my own, but will all those old lenses work on cameras today? Pentax cameras I mean (with exception of af).

That's a big strength of Pentax, all K-mount lenses will work as designed (with a few metering exceptions). At worst, you'll have to tell the camera to meter the scene for you (by pressing a button). The camera will then set the appropriate shutter speed for you, depending on the mode you're in.
