A big Thank you.
I just bought batteries and a film and it works.
We`ll see the results when I develop it.
Thanks for pdfs.

SMC Pentax-A 1:2 50mm - I don`t get it

Hello dear Pentax users.
For some time I am a K-X user - and that`s fine (use it in auto mode). I know how to operate SMC Pentax-A lenses in Av mode ( I don`t have any Ms). But my knowledge is poor when it comes to manual settings.
A week ago I decided to buy Pentax Me Super - just to get to know how to take good pics and simply learn.
I`ve read forums and I read that my ME Super should work Pentax-A lens.
But when I mount pentax A lens on Me Super (no battery yet in the body/no film) and try to scroll the apperture ring nothing changes. I mean the petals in the lens don`t move - but they do move when I dismount it and simply look in the lens.
I know that there`s somewhere a trick. Or maybe I need batteries cause the body will adjust the F value itself. The camera also has to buttons (manual shutter) maybe it`s this.
I know that the body is automatic when it comes to the time of shutter.
Can I operate F value form the body then?

Please forgive my newbe photo language ;) it`s hard but I`m learning
thanks
Kellya
