Which Pentax DSLR should I get?

Hello all,

I want to buy a new Pentax camera and I need some advice.

I currently have a Pentax istDs2 which I bought along with a 18-55 AL lens. I also have an arsenal of several older Pentax M and A lenses that I have purchased over the years going all the way back to my trusty ME Super days. I rarely use those older M and A lenses now due to lack of auto focus, etc.

My questions are:

1.) Where can I go to read about current Pentax DSLR camera recommendations and user feedback?

2.) Where can I go to read about old lens compatibility with newer cameras? (or is it even worth it?)

Maybe I should just get a new Pentax camera with a 55-300mm AL lens, and along with my existing 18-55 lens, that's all I'd need. Still, I'd like to get my older lenses involved if practical.

I'm a moderately skilled amateur. Do you more experienced folk still out there still use your older lenses?

Thanks very much for any direction you can give me.
