Which Pentax body to use with legacy lenses?


I shoot with K5IIs Pentax AF lenses  (All are primes anyway)

I also have few manual Pentax primes -  SMC Pentax 50mm F 1.7 and  SMC Pentax M 20mm F3.5 and now looking for a Pentax body to especially use those lenses. As, I m planning to add few more manual lenses, I want to keep a decent Pentax body for my manual and other M42 mount primes.

Don't want to involve in too much lens changes and prefer to keep a used Pentax body especially for old lenses.

which Pentax body will be good to use with old and manual lenses without compromising low light and high ISO performance?

Pentax K100D Super

Pentax K200D

Pentax K-x

Pentax K-r

Pentax K-5

A used K-30 or K-50 or K500

What's your recommended body to shoot with the legacy lenses ?
