Question About M1.7 and the F--


I've asked this before but apologize I don't remember the answer. I have an M 1.7 on my K-01 and looking forward to using it but there is an F-- on the screen and I don't know that I have the setting on the camera correct. Can you recommend how you set up this lens and how to get rid of the F-- on the screen?

Many thanks.

Look up the using manual lens on K-01 guide in the forum, search in the homepage and you should see it. F-- is normal because you are using M series lens.

You can't get rid of this, the camera is simply telling you that no aperture info in available (no pin connectors). And make sure you switch on the "allow manual aperture" in the function menu.
