Tokina AT-X SD 80-200/2.8 adapter question

I just received a Tokina AT-X SD 80-200/2.8 in the mail from ebay and I'm not sure which adapter I need to make this work on my K10. It does not have the "A" setting on the aperture ring. thanks.

As long as its a K mount lens you don't need any adapter to make it work on your K10. Since it doesn't have the A setting on the aperture ring you'll have to use it in M mode and use the green button to meter.

I have the same lens. Sharp as a tack at all focal lengths, and even sharp wide open. It is a wonderful lens.
It is, however, a K Mount, not a Ka mount, so you need to use the stop down metering routine.
Presuming you got a K-Mount lens. The Tokinas are not an interchangeable mount lens, so if it isn't a K-mount, you won't be able to us it on a Pentax.

I am looking at a Tokina AT-X 828 AF for my K10D. From what you're saying am I correct to understand that not all of these lenses have an "A" setting for aperture? I guess I just assumed that any AF lens would also have an auto setting for aperture as well.

If it is an AF, it will be an A series lens. The SD series is quite old.
