K5 IIS and M42 Lens

New to DSLR. Have been trying to understand my new Pentax K5 iis for almost two months. After learning from this forum about the M42 manual lens, I went ahead to purcahse a Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 55mm f1.8. Struggling for 2 weeks then manage to capture some decent shots. Not easy to use manual lens, but kind of like it after getting hands on it.
