Greetings from Manitoba!

Hey there from Winnipeg, Canada!
Just got my new K-30 Pentax. Happy I chose this over the canon I was used too.
My pentax k-1000 is my favourite camera and I'm glad to stick with Pentax once again.

1 question though,

on my k-30 I am trying to put on my lens, a Miranda (35-70mm) Macro lens.
It works on my film camera and fits onto my k-30, but when I try to take pictures it won't do it. Instead I get a red (F--) sign in the aperture spot.

Welcome to the forum, be sure to set "use aperture ring" to allow in the custom menu.

Welcome from a fellow Pegger! You have found a wonderful place on the internet to connect with fellow Pentaxians. There are a few of us who visit the forum from Manitoba.
