Pentax KX and Takumar SMC 200 mm f/4 lens

I just ordered the subject mentioned vintage lens from an online outlet and it is due to arrive by the weekend. Question: Will this directly fit my KX or do I need some sort of adapter? Also, I'm assuming the focus and aperture are manually set by the lens, correct? Thank you!

You will need an M42 adapter for K-mount.
