Samyang 85mm on K-1 mounting issue

Hello all,

I got the samyang 85mm 1.4 lens for Christmas and I noticed when mounting it. If the lens is set to A I can't get the lens to mount properly. I have to close the aperature some then it will lock in. Then I can change the lens to A and it works fine.

just thinking of all the 'A' lenses that I have and it doesn't matter a whit where the aperture ring is set when mounting the lens - can you post a shot of the lens mount on this Samyang?

There is perhaps an issue with the retracting A contact.

So when the lens is set to f/22 it works fine it's only when set to A. It just gets stopped and cant move further.
