Takumar-A Zoom 28-80 macro

Have my fathers Takumar 28-80. It has a macro setting at 80. My question is, when using it on the K10d, upon start-up, what should I set the focal length to? (20 or 77?)
thx in advance...

What do you plan to shoot? Wide, use 28, long, use 80. As to the macro setting, does your lens go macro at the short or long end. It varies among lenses.

Ah, so if I understand correctly, depending on the focal length that I intend to adjust the zoom to, is the focal length I should program in? Re the macro going to either the short or long end, the Macro setting is at 80 so I'm assuming that means the long end? If I understand correctly, if I plan on taking a macro shot, I should program the focal length for 80? (By the way, what are the consequences of programming incorrectly?)
Thanks for the response CR...
