How to choose 14mm


I think it might be a stupid question , but how do I choose 14mm in the camera menu when I will use a Samyang 14mm lens?
It just offers me 8,12,15 ...
I have a K-3ii. Hope someone can help

You can't. Just use the closest value, so 15mm.

There is no way to choose 14mm because Ricoh doesn't include it. Neither did Hoya or Pentax...

There are other common focal lengths they left out, like 90mm...

14mm is too mainstream for Pentax! You can have 15, 31, 43, 77...

just like choosing 17mm - you get close and then go shoot....
