Actually there are no problems using manual lenses on Pentax bodies because mount is the same K Mount. They didn't change it. My collection of M42s will also fit with no issues. But it won't work with Nikon cameras.

M42 and K mount are OK on Pentax DSLRs.

Nikon mount manual focus lenses are OK on Nikon DSLRs.

and so on. But a mirrorless camera is thin enough to accept adapters for almost any mount. I can use Topcon, Exakta, Pentax M42, Leica M39 and M, Nikkor, Soviet lenses, T mount lenses, Canon lenses, Olympus OM lenses ... with the right adapters.

That is the big advantage of a mirrorless camera.

But from the images I see posted, the Pentax DSLRs do take superb photos.
