SMC Pentax FA 50mm F1.4 lens

Hey folks, I'm interested in buying the Pentax 50mm F1.4 lens. However I'd like to know if this particular lens have an aperture ring, and also if it would be compatable with my ZX-M film camera. Thanks for your help!

I own a MZ-M (the same as the ZX-M, marketed under this name only in the USA), and it works in all modes with A, F, FA and DFA lenses, because all these lenses have an aperture ring and an automatic diaphragm.

I.e. the FA 50mm f/1.4 will work in all modes on a ZX-M. As does the FA 43mm f/1.9 Limited (which I have). Focusing manually, of course.

The FAJ lenses lack an aperture ring and only work in Tv and P mode on the MZ-M.

Cheers,
