Saving EV compensation for different lenses on K-30

Hi,
I have to adjust my DA40 limited to -1.0 on the EV compensation to get somewhat accurate exposure settings. The rest of my lenses seem to be closer to >0<. Is there a way I could have my K-30 'remember' the DA40 and automatically set the EV to EV -1.0 when I use this lens?
Thanks!

I don't think so unless the User Modes remember? I hardly ever use them so can't recall what it does remember.

I am only aware of the fine focus adjustment feature. If you shoot in RAW it wont be a problem if you forget to compensate. You can adjust it in PP.

Seems like you might have a problem with that lens. Is the aperture closing properly?

Funny you say that. It was sent into CRIS a few months ago for overexposing. After spending $90 for an aperture adjustment, it came back a little better but not entirely so I just figured it was the nature of the lens.

Funny you mention this because I found yesterday that when testing my flash meter that I get differing exposures depending on the lens,
Shoot a greycard at f8 and the centre spike is spot on with pentax lens but under by 1/2 stop on a sigma, it was a quick test so to day I!m going to test again

Tests pretty inconclusive really between 6 lenses fitted to a k5 in m mode , all shot a a grey target at iso 100 -1/125, F8 as indicated by seconic 358 meter using a bowens mono block flash as light source.

The grey when checked in acr is so close to reading the same in each shot as to make little difference , nothin you would see with the naked eye.
