using a k mount lens on pentax q

hello .. have bought a converter (to k mount lenses) for the q. it's not a pentax model. would appreciate a step by step guide on how to set it up and the resultant abilities. can I just manually focus with it? if using a zoom lens (28-90) should the distance be set at 450mm? is there sr (shake reduction) available? the answers to the above and all other relevant questions is welcome. it might be that I need to link onto a previous thread. I have looked for one that gives a janet and john explanation but cannot find one. anticipated thanks

1. you manual focus
2. you set the FL as the lens is marked (i.e., a 50mm lens is 50mm in SR)
3. your best resource is the Q Forum sticky posts at the top of the Forum, especially the Resources post - and the first several Replies made by LKarry and Hans and Barondla (and others) to name a few. There is a video about how to use the Pentax K>Q Adapter - much infomration transfer to Third-Party adapters, but not all.
