Samyang 8mm fish - A setting?

Hi.
Had a quick trawl and can't seem to find answer to this specific Q.
Basically... Can I control the aperture setting in camera (Av setting on K-x)using a Samyang/Falcon/Rokinon/Blah blah... 8mm fisheye lens?

I know the lens is manual focus but it being half the price of the Pentax 10-17mm fisheye I might acually be able to afford it this year. There doesn't seem to be much fisheye action on the UK second hand/used scene...

Yes, you can indeed control the aperture on the 8mm fisheye, and there is also an A setting: Samyang 8mm F3.5 Fisheye CS Lens Reviews - Pentax Third-Party Lens Review Database

Just check the photo- the aperture ring and the A setting are both there. The textual info could be added as well, though.
