Hi from South Africa

About time I joined after all these years using Pentax cameras .....


I am currently having a strange issue with my K-5 'sticking' in aperture priority mode for a while (and giving no F __ reading). I am using the Pentax 18-250 lens.

Welcome to the forum, glad you could make it at last.

You might want to start a thread with your K5 issue in the Pentax DSLR Discussion, K5 camera section, where there's more chance of the right folk reading the post and hopefully coming up with a possible solution.

Hi,

Welcome from a fellow SA Pentaxian. As you can see in my signature, have a K-30 and a few lenses.

What part of SA are you from?

Welcome to another RSA pentaxian. Great camera you have.

With regard to your error, have you tried cleaning the lens and camera contacts and then re-mounting. The F-- is what you typically get when a manual lens is mounted
