Re: Pentax-A 35-105 f3.5 Macro

That is a two touch zoom i.e. the big front ring adjusts focus and the small ring with the focal length numbers on adjusts, well, focal length. The zoom ring should rotate fairly freely but there is some resistance. Try setting the lens to infinity focus before trying to use the zoom ring. If it hasn't been used for a long time it may be very stiff.

I don't think that lens was described as a Macro lens by Pentax though.
