If I get a pentax a50mm, what is the procedure to set the exposure? Is it involved or relatively simple?

PKa mount as in the A 50 is the first 100% compatible lens you exposure the aperture is in the A position and shoot as for any other modern lens.

Including matrix P-ttl flash it all works normally you just have to manually focus.

For Older non 'A' lens you have to set 'allow aperture' in the menu, then set aperture you want on the lens, Press the grenn button to set a stopped down exposure reading thens shoot the image.

Flash will not function in P-ttl and you really need to use manual flash .
