K7 lost lens correction funtion

Hello fellow Pentaxians. I'm having a bit of trouble with my K7. For some reason I have set something that has blocked me out of the lens correction function in the menu of my K7. Does anyone have any idea of how to get it back? I feel so silly having to ask this as I just upgraded to a K5 and apparently I didn't learn how to operate the K7.

What lens and mode do you use? It can only be use with supported lenses and Jpeg.

The Lens distortion correction function will work only for Pentax lenses.

Personally I switch off this option anyway and I tend to prefer to correct the photograph in-computer during PP. PTLens (PTLens) is the most effiient lens distortion correction program IMO, but PDCU does a decent job.

Hope that the comment may help.:evil:

Also it really slows down the camera.

It's doing it with the kit lens in jpeg and I actually just noticed it. I haven't seen any real problems in my photos it's just bugging me as I'm wishing to sell the unit to a friend and wish to know how to correct this if asked to.

What are you trying to ask? How to disable lens correction? That's done through the status screen or the record menu.

Pardon me Adam, what I am asking is how to ENABLE the lens correction funtion as it is "greyed" out in the menu and is not accessible. Should someone wish to purchase the camera with that function unavailable could it be something wrong with the firmware.

So you can choose Lens Correction with the kit lens and Jpeg?

Thanks all for trying to help. I'm almost glad I'm selling the K7. I swapped out the kit lens for a Sigma and after shutting it down and reinstalling the kit lens the lens correction function is working. Very strange.
