You might want to see this article on modern lenses versus older ones. Among the film-era Pentax lenses, some remain very useable, well sought after. I don't know if you have any of the standout gems.

Here's a picture from today using an SMC-A 28mm f2.0 on the K-S2's 20mpx sensor. All you can do, I suppose, is inventory your lenses against what might be the good ones.

This article is much criticized and rightly so. For example it claims that zoom lenses are only capable of making 2-dimensional images that look flat and lifeless.

Here is one with my Contax 35-70 zoom with plenty of life and some 3D.
