50mm M 1.4 on a K10D?

i came across a 50mm m 1.4 k-mount in a local shop this morning, in almost mint condition. at 30 quid it seemed very cheap, but when mounted on the shops K10D it locked up. we tried manual focus (naturally) and M setting. it just wouldn't work. i thought all lenses ever made worked on the k10? any ideas on why this one wouldn't? i didn't check the firmware and i'm not sure if this is valid anyway.
cheers

How do you mean "locked up"?

Did you go into the setup and enabled "Use Aperture Ring"? This will enable stopped-down meter with the green button. K10d won't release the shutter otherwise.

M50 1.4 is a great lens on the K10D. Very sharp, great build quality. It's my favorite as far as focusing feel, even when compared against Super Taks and the Limited lenses. I don't have any K lenses to compare though ... have to fix that.
