Pentax FA 45-85 Lens

I have a Pentax FA 45-85 Lens on my Pentax 645n camera, can the lens be switched to manual focusing mode ?

" Sliding the focus ring forward or backwards quickly lets a photographer change from auto to manual focus, down to a minimum distance of 1.6 feet away. "

It works the same way as the Phase One lenses do. It took me a little while to figure this out as well.

How true. If the "Auto Focus" words are not visible then how would you know about the MF/AF feature without a manual. As mentioned, once you understand the system they all work the same except for the 75/2.8 and the newer lenses.
