Zenitar-K2 Fisheye lens

I recently purchased a Zenitar K2 8/16 lens to use on my DSLR K-100 D; however, my system does not recognize the lens. Does anyone know why this is? Is it because this lens is designed for an SLR rather than a DSLR?

Has anyone used this lens with a Pentax DSLR?

Thanks in advance for your comments.

You will need to set Using Aperture Ring to Permitted in the Custom menu. Since the lens doesn't have the A contacts you will have to use M mode and stop-down metering.
