New (USED) Lens HELP !!

I got a Tokina (circa 1989) 70-210mm f1:4-5.6 lens of eBay. Works as good as it looks. According to THK products it is a model SZX210 per S/N.
I don't have a manual (it's on the way from Percision Photo, I hope) ! I tried several setting and got some images. It has an "A" setting. I set MF on my K200D and A-E lock. Did the manual focus thing and had to Photo Shop to view them.
Any helpful pointers would be appreciated !

There is not much to say!

Except for having to manually focus, your new/old lens should be fully functional on your K200D in all exposure modes (aperture ring on "A") without any special effort on your part. You have my permission to go out and have fun!

I did the Av thing and got great images. Now I got to figure how to upload pics. I tried the attachment route and nothing show ????

I have this lens too! How do you like the pictures? I haven't got a chance to field test mine, since I still have plenty of primes to play (read: to learn) with
As many other Tokina lenses, it's a very compact 210mm lens for sure.
