K5 IIS Focus Points Not Showing Up

I have both a K5 and a K5 IIs (16-50 & 50-135 DA* lenses in use with them)
I use Aperture 3.5.1 for my work flow

I shoot in RAW

The K5 IIs is new to me.

In Aperture the focus points show on photos shot with the K5 but not with the K5 IIs.

I think I must be missing a setting on the camera because the icon is not available in these photos but is in the K5 -- it's like the information is not being stored in it's RAW file.

Any advice? Instructions? on how to get the focus points to show up?

Do you have "Digital Camera RAW Compatibility Update 4.04"? Or whatever OS update Apple says that understands the K-5 IIs.

(Just over the limit of my Apple knowledge here.)

I am assuming it is a camera setting I am missing. Any clues out there?

My idea was that Apple wasn't interpreting the file correctly. There might be a difference between how Apple treats DNGs from PEFs but that's about all I can think of. I don't know if there's a camera setting for that data.

I shoot RAW - DNG if that makes a difference? The rest of the situation is fine, file loads, metadata is all there, ... just missing the focus points. For the K5 the focus points are there and for the K5iis they are not.

I have the K-5 IIs and I never saw focusing points on any of my pictures whether shooting RAW or JPEG. I had that feature on an other camera from another manufacturer, but found it more annoying than helpful.

Hi David,

I very well could be wrong, but it might be that your software might be using an older version of the exif standard to read the metadata, or that Pentax shifted the info you seek to a different field in the exif data for the newer body. I'd suggest that you contact your software vendor's support and at least notify them of this problem and see if they can find a solution or update that will help.
