P/K should mount without problems but K/AR is Konica mount I think and there isn't an adapter available to mount it on your camera or at least I haven't seen one. That 28mm 1:2 sounds interesting, can you post pictures of the lens?

K/AR mount is Konica Bayonet II mount (Konica AutoReflex I guess). It does not fit Pentax camera. I doubt if the value of the lens is worth looking for an adapter, if it exists.

Have you enabled the "allow use of aperture ring" custom menu setting?

I believe Ovim wanted to see the picture of the lens, not the picture taken with the lens. I also interested to see the picture of the lens, because I've never heard of Tokina 28mm F2 before. I have Kiron 28mm F2 and wondering if I there's any resemblance between the two. AFAIK the Kiron 28mm F2 is similar to (some) Vivitar 28mm F2. Here's a picture of my Kiron, it has either 52 or 55mm filter thread (at the office atm and don't have the lens with me).

sorry for the confusion, it is a tokina 1 :2 8 like the one in the third party lens reviews, I must put my glasses on more often, the older I get the worse my eyes get....
