I haven't done this before, but I thought you could use the Remote F to trigger the shutter open and closed with a press of the button. Am I remembering that wrong?
Yes. You must hold the button on the remote to keep the shutter open.

Ahh, so you have to hold it down, but at least you won't get the extra shake from pressing the shutter release. I guess for long exposures in bulb, it pays to pick up a cable release or IR remote for bodies prior to the K-7.

I believe K-7 was the first model to allow button presses to indicate start and end of exposure.
This only applies to IR remotes.
