Focal lenght set up for analog zooms

Hello
I've purchased a PENTAZ A 35-105 f3.5 lens. Mounting it on my K3 it asks me to indicate the focal length of the lens. What's the suggested/best length shoud I provide ?

Thanks for help in advance.

This is for the K-30 but it should hold true for the K-3. Using K-30 With Older Lenses | Ricoh Imaging Support
The last paragraph reads:
"The Input Focal Length screen will appear. Use the rear e-dial to select a focal length which is closest to the focal length of the lens you are using. If you are using a zoom lens, choose a focal length close to the midpoint of the zoom range of the camera. Press the OK button when you have made a selection."

You'll get the best results if you enter the focal length you'll be using most. You can always change the focal length setting later via the menu.
