Everyone is different, but being one of the older riders, I feel my knees act up from time to time. Personally, I feel the pressure on my knees to be somewhat less when using shorter cranks and higher saddle. The knees simply don't have to bend as much. It also helps if I wear compression sleeves over the knees. Seems to help me, but may not help others. (I only really notice knee issues on longer road rides, like more than 20 miles.) Experiment, and you will find what works best for you.
Good luck!
