Use of lens mount adapter EF to Pentax K

Are there any issues in using an adapter so I can use my Pentax K lenses on my T100 in all manual mode?

It won't damage the camera. Back in film EOS days the camera would display f00. Not sure what displays now. 

I used to use a fixed aperture 500mm mirror lens.

I don't see that the T100 has the option to shoot without a lens attached, only with no card.

I don't believe you need to enable shooting without a lens on the T100 or 3000D. That seems to only apply to mirrorless cameras. Any DSLR I have ever used will always shoot without a lens attached.

Thanks for the information.  My Pentax K100D died and I have several k mount lenses and am not afraid to use the manual mode.

It works!  I can use my lenses...   It does show F00.  I shot three pictures using manual mode and my Kiron zoom and they came out fine.  Thanks again for the assistance. 

"...they came out fine."

 

How about posting a sample or two of "fine" ? I have never been impressed with the old lenses vs even the cheapest new lenses.
