Kx with Sigma 70 mm Macro?

I was thinking of buying a Sigma 70 mm Macro 2.8 EX DG lens to pair with my Kx. The lens, however, dosnt have an aperture ring and the Sigma website says that because of that some features may or may not work on a Pentax. Does anyone have any info about how this lens would work on a KX and what if any features woudlnt work?

It is fully compatible with the K-x. The absence of the aperture ring means it would not work fully with older film bodies lacking a means to control aperture from the camera.
