Using an M-lens (135mm 3.5) on Digital Body


I just picked up a Pentax-M 135mm 3.5 lens. I have a K20D and I'm having trouble getting it to work. It mounts to the body fine, its just that nothing happens when I press the shutter button.

Do I need to use a separate mount for the lens for it to work?

P.S. do not give up early on the M lenses. They produce fantastic photos. The Green Button is your friend.
