Pentax F 35-80mm 1:4-5.6 lens instructions

I have a used Pentax 1st DL2 camera it came with a manual 50mm lens fitted, I was after something to try the auto setting on the camera.

The instruction book says a Pentax F 35-80 1:4-5.6 lens will work with the camera,
I have bought one for not a lot of money on e-bay, but being a beginner not sure how it works.

Is there an instruction book for the lens?

Just set the aperture ring to A, pressing the little button will allow the ring to move to A. . I have one and it is a great lens for not much money. Go to "lenses" in the forum and you will find information on most lenses which will fit Pentax cameras.
