A mounts on k20d

I was wondering if I need anything special to use A mount lenses on my k20d. I am thinking of getting the fixed A mount 50mm 1.4 or 1.2 over the 50mm FA 1.4. I dont mind the manuel focus as long is its optically equal.

The Pentax-A 50mm f/1.4 was the first manual focus lens I added to my collection and it is by far my favorite to use. As long as the lens Aperture ring is set to "A" then the metering is just like your fully auto lenses. Just manual focus. I use Aperature priority or Manual mode on the K20D and I think some modes don't work, you would have to look that up. Its now been a couple months since I had to read everything to get started.

So the answer is no, nothing special. If you get it and dont like it, you will have NO trouble reselling it.
