The 2 F series lenses should work without any specific setting change on your K20D. But if you received the F---- msg then check that the aperture ring on the lenses are set to 'A' position.

Welcome aboard. When you make sure everything is working properly, put that 35-70 on the camera and go walking around with it. It's what I call a real sleeper. That is, a very nice lens that seems to get overlooked quite often.
