I recently purchased a Nikon D70 with 18-70 lens (less than a month ago).
I also have an old Nikon 1:1.4/50 lens for use but it needs a repair as it does not close at the moment.

I have since been given a range of lenses for Pentax
  1. Asahi Takumar 1:1.8/85 (screw mount)
  2. Asahi 1:3.5/28 (screw mount)
  3. Asahi Takumar SMC 1:2/55 (screw mount)
  4. Asahi Takumar 1:2/55 (screw mount)
  5. Asahi Pentax SMC 1:2.8/40
  6. Auto CPC/HPS 70-200 Zoom 1:4.5
  7. Steinheil Munchen Tele-Quinar 1:4.5/200
  8. Converter from screw mount.
My dilemma is that I would love to be able to use these lenses with a digital camera. Since I already have the D70 I would loose money were I to sell it and replace with the Pentax ist D. But would it in your opinion be worth it in the long run.

I do not have an answer but, make sure that all of the lenses have a manual setting for the aperture control, if not they will not stop down automatically on the *ist D.

They are all rather old and were used on manual cameras by my father. So the aperture is set using a ring on the lens, is this what you mean?
