wouldn't have thought the K200D or any other Pentax dslr
stops down the aperture of M42 len. The only aperture movement is via the human finger surely.

By "closing" (with quotation marks) I meant the sound of the aperture actuation arm moving in the body even with M42 lenses which don't have the aperture lever (and are indeed stopped down manually). And that's why I liked this new body which just meters without a sound (with M42 in Av)

can you use the M42 lenses on the k-r without an adapter?

No. You need the M42->K adapter with every Pentax DSLR. Here's a page listing the different (recommended) genuine adapter variations by forum member HinMan.
