If it's an auto lens (I assume it is), you don't need to input focal length. The camera will adjust SR automatically You can only input focal length for manual lenses.

And if at any stage you want to put an M lens on your K20D, be sure to check the 'permit non-A lens' setting in the menus - then your 'input focal length' setting matters for shake reduction.
