New to the Forum

Hello!

I'm new to these pages.


And I want to thank you for your help already. You have already solved a problem I was having with my K20D and Sigma 24-135mm lens. With the Sigma on the K20D the menus of the camera would only stay on for a few seconds, not anywhere near long enough to change any settings. With any of my other lenses I was able to use the menus as long as I liked.


There was a common suggestion in the support forums when there was an issue with a specific lens and camera combination. Clean the contacts on the lens and the camera. Which I did and fixed my problem.


Thank you!

That's part of why we're here. Besides the shared interests and camaraderie many of us support the Pentax user community with advice, suggestions, and solutions. There's such a wealth of information on the PentaxForums that every Pentax user should consider being a member., even users of other camera systems can benefit.

BTW don't forget to give back. There's things you may know that few of us do. Every member is a valuable resource. Welcome to PentaxForums!

Welcome , Ive been on this forum for 11 years and still find helpful things every day. Make sure to participate in some of the challenges, a good way to get better and to get to know some of the people here. Were here to have fun, get to be better photographers, and help each other. And I need all the help I can get!
