Pentax k70 Image Capture Issue

I just purchased a Pentax SMC 50mm M f/1.2 lens and am unable to get the camera to take a photograph with the lens on.

I am able to change focus and f.

Any ideas? Any more information you need that would be helpful?

No worries, ask away. It is just easier to point to the article than chance missing something.
