Default Vivitar Lenses

Hello all. I don't know if this is a question for here but Ill try.. I have a Asahi Pentax, but my question is I have 3 ( 28mm. 85-205mm and 400mm) lenses and was wondering if these would fit on any modern day cameras? I can't find anywhere that tells me.

they are really nice lenses so it'd be awesome if I could find a awesome camera to put them with. Im looking for somethinh to take pictures with on my trip in Korea.

I understand how you feel about your Vivitar lenses. I have a Vivitar 28mm lens (mounted on camera on right) for my Pentax cameras that was such an excellent performer that I bought the following adapters so I could use it on my Nikon cameras (film and digital) and my Olympus Ep-1 compact digital:

M42 to Nikon F mount adapter

M42 to m4/3 lens adapter

Yeah, I just found converters, which is nice to be able to use such a nice lens for just starting out.
Nice picture, I have the one on the left. got it for free at a garage sell with the lenses.
