Pentax KX won't shoot with 50mm lens

Hey. I have a Pentax KX and just got the Horusbennu 50mm F1.7 MC lens. I attached the lens to my camera and try to take pictures/ video but the camera doesn't want to shoot. There is no shutter release when I push the button. This is a Manual 50mm lens.
Do I need to change the setting on the KX to be able to shoot with this lens?

Hey nutballa,

very interested in some shots to see the quality of that lens. Once you have some shots that you're happy with, please see if you can't post a few samples.

Reason for asking is that people who are interested in it, are turned off by comments from others who do not have the lens.

Alright. I'll mess around with the lens and post some pictures up here.
