There is no correction, focal length is focal length

I'm guessing upon power-up with the 28mm lens mounted, your K-5 is asking you to enter the focal length of the lens because that information is not programmed into the older lenses. Enter the closest length to 28mm and that will help the shake reduction perform better.
