Quick question-- is there a way to get my camera to recognize the A setting on the aperture ring so I can do auto-aperture, or do I just need to treat it as manual everything? I gave it a cursory try last night and couldn't figure it out.

which camera?

on the K-50, I put the lens' aperture ring on the 'A' setting, and I use either 'Av' or 'TAv' on the mode dial - 'Av' gives you control of the aperture, but auto-sets ISO, etc...
'TAv' lets you set aperture, shutter speed, etc.... of course, you could also just go full 'M' and set everything yourself....

I have finished taking my pictures and I will have them edited and up in the next few days. In the meantime, could whoever's next in line remind me of their address, so I can send the lens off?

Here are the pictures from the Nifty Fifty! At the wedding, I was so busy doing wedding things that I didn't manage to get any good pictures, so, I'm sorry for disrupting the order of things for something that ultimately didn't work out! But I did get some nice pictures of the fall colors in the Cambridge/Somerville area. The full album is here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/118756484@N04/ I'll get the lens off in the mail soon!

Oh, this one?

I was confused because they're actually red boots. I do have two pairs of pink cowboy boots, but I was confused because I haven't put any photos of them on my Flickr page, to my knowledge. But yes, they are mine!

Are they actually magenta or are they only Pentax-red?

@clackers – the lens looks like coming to you fairly soon. I'll be passing through Adelaide on the road to Uluru (not our PF comrade) the week after next, and back the week after, so we may coincide when you have the Nifty Fifty. It'd be good to shoot the Rock with it, but that might be asking a bit much.

Obviously a lot has to happen before then, Rob. The Fifty has to get off its face on in-flight cocktails, join the Mile High Club and get its luggage lost in the Singapore airport stayover. Will let you know by PM of its jet-lagged arrival.

I shall attend your signal…

PS – of course, I meant I'd be passing through Melbourne, but you knew that. Daylight Saving Time does that to you.
