Lens Compatibility: M + A Series on K200D

Hey all. Just a question, as stated above. I might get the opportunity to pick up a whole bunch of Pentax M and A series lenses on the cheap. I wanted to know if they will work with the K200D. I know the Auto-Takumar lenses won't fire except wide open, and was wondering if I can expect similar issues with the bayonet-mount M and A series.

Thanks.

A is good, but Centerweight Metering

for M, see the link in this article, Stop-Down Metering

as far as the takumar lens if you are using it on the K200 you have to make sure that the switch on the side that changes the lens from auto to manual is set on manual then you will be able to change the aperture and the lens will no longer be shooting wide open
