I have a Pentax Spotmatic SPII and three screw mount M42 lenses ... 28/3.5, 50/1.4 and 135/3.5

I want to maybe use them on a digital body.

I used to be all in on Fuji ... a X-Pro2 and a few lenses. Sold them to buy more film stuff.

Before I jump back into Fuji, does anyone have a better idea?

Welcome jdurr3!

M42 lens adapters are readily available for many digital cameras on ebay, Amazon, other places. Some of them have chips which allow use of some digital camera features such as Aperture Priority and Autofocus Peaking. For Sony mirrorless digital cameras there are the LM-EA7 and newer LM-EA9 Autofocus Adapters which work with nearly any manual focus lens including M42.
