setting focal length mc zenitar 16mm 2.8 fisheye lens into pentax k-x

hey all
might be a silly question
when installing an mc zenitar 16mm 2.8 fisheye lens into pentax k-x

after I switch it on it asks for a focal length

the closest option is 15 mm

does it matter ?
is that the right setting ?

photos turn out alright

Yes, you always want to select the closest focal length.
1 mm difference should be ok, even though it is the wide end.

Select the closest focal length that is smaller than the actual one if there isn't an option for the actual.
