No shake reduction with M42?

Hi Folks!

I'm trying an old Takumar 400mm on my K100D body, and when I do, I don't get shake reduction, whether or not the shake reduction switch is set to On or Off.

I don't get the focal length selector on startup, and the canceled shake reduction icon appears on the screen.

I get shake reduction with other M42 lenses. Any ideas?

Thanks!
Dave

Hmmmm...you should get it. I can't imagine why that one lens wouldn't allow SR.

Sorry, the only help I can offer is to bump your question back up to the top.

It is odd, isn't it? Thanks!

Allow af confirmation with screw mount lenses from the custom settings menu and you should be able to use SR as well, IIRC.

Strange, very strange.

My K100D need no lens at all to ask for focal length when SR is on (I tested both M & Av camera modes). It also asks when a M or A lens is mounted. Auto Focus, Manual focus mode also makes no difference.

Possibly this is related to the obscure "K100D does bad things with my takumar because the black anodization finish insulates the lens from the contacts on the body" problem?

My K10D always shows the SR range confirmation every time i turn it on. All my m42 lenses (28mm-135mm) they all work with SR.

Ah, and now I can answer that question...

A few weeks back, I reset all the camera's settings to factory defaults. So I lost the auto focus setting I needed for the Takumar.

Thanks to all!
Dave
