That one is actually 49mm. The kit lens is 52mm, though.
Database says the 50-200 is 52mm: Pentax-DA 50-200mm F4-5.6 ED Reviews. If the OP does have a 49mm-thread zoom, then he'll need a cheap 52-49mm step-down ring to fit the 0.45x screw-in.

Yes, contrary to all the other versions of the 50-200 that came before it, the WR uses 49mm instead of 52mm threads.
