SMC Pentax-A 1:1.7 50mm SLR Manual

Hi, everyone.
I just received a SMC Pentax-A 1:1.7 50mm SLR camera from my uncle. It is in perfect working condition, he assures me, but he doesn't have the manual and I have absolutely no idea how to use it. I've checked eBay and done Google searches, but I cannot find one available on the web, either for viewing or purchasing. Does anyone have any idea where I might find one, or any tips regarding going about learning how to use this thing?
Thanks so much!

Hannahactually The camera you refer to I believe is a lens and not the camera, have a look on the camera body for a different number.
How old is the camera? if it is less than 10 years old it will probably be an MZ..... KZ......or an*ist...

Once you have established that go to
Pentax Instruction Manuals
and you will probably find your manual.

I have done a bit of research for you, The lens you have was released in March '83 and was fitted as a standard lens on the Pentax Super Program also released in march'83, and it was also available on the MG which was still a current model Released in '82.
The above link has a lot of manuals for sale ranging from £6 UK(copies) to £30 for some of the rarer original manuals.

Hope I have been of some help.

This has been extremely helpful; thank you so very much. I feel so silly for posting the lens model instead of the camera model, but I appreciate your kindness and knowledge. Thanks so much once again!
