Newbie - F-- with FA 50mm

Hi there,

New to the forum. Recently purchased a K5 after much deliberation and love it. Just picked up a 50mm FA 1.7, but it doesn't appear to work with the K5. A 'F' flashes on the top screen. Tried all modes but nothing. Anyone have any ideas?

Cheers,
Hanley

Turn the aperture ring to the "A" position and it'll work
