Impact damage??? remove the lens and check the barrel for straightness. also the rear lens element must be perfectly straight. some of the latest lenses have a plastic helical gear that can be tapped out with a light hammer and a piece of wood ( 1in X 4in. ) used on the high end of the rear lens, if impacted.

Any Pentax K-mount lens will fit any Pentax DSLR. The DSLR will fire the shutter. There is a menu setting (RTFM) which allows the use of older lenses, but you will lose some of the automation (again RTFM). Remember to allow that the effective focal length when using a "film" lens on a DSLR body goes up by 50%.
A standard 50mm lens becomes a 75mm equivalent, but stays a large aperture.
