Using Autofocus on the Pentax K20D with FA*24mm lens.

Hello Everyone,

If someone has both the K20D and the FA*24mm, I'd appreciate the help.

Very simply, I'm having a hard time getting the autofocus to work for this lens on my K20D. There is nothing wrong with the body because I can autofocus with other lenses. I know I'm missing something simple.

Did you engage the auto focus clutch on the lens body itself (you can push/pull to go from auto/manual focus without messing with the switches on the K20D body).

If you look at the lens barrel, it will say auto focus when engaged.

Argh! I've never seen the pentax auto/manual focus clutch system before! So I was quite perplexed. I finally figure it out. Thanks!
