Legacy lens performance on Pentax DSLR bodies

Ask 10 people a question and it is possible to get 10 different answers.

So here goes.

Just how effective are Pentax legacy lenses on their modern DSLR's ?  By effective, I refer to optical performance.  I am aware that the manual-focus oldies will always be "manual" and that the auto (expose) function will not work with the older "M" series lenses.

I do however, believe that the A-series lenses retain their "auto" expose functionality on DSLR's.

What interests me most is the actual lens performance in terms of CA and sharpness.

Your comments would be appreciated.
