Yes, it is still worth it, I think: you'll just have to meter it like a K lens... and you never know, memory plays tricks sometime, and it may indeed be a KA!

ok, now for a really noob question. having had my k200d for only a few months, and thus no experience with manual lenses, if i get the lens, i set it for use with aperture ring, and what about the metering? would setting the shutter speed be guess work then? or does the k200d still meter the light coming in?
