vanguy,

I think I'll save dropping the camera as a last resort! Although, admittedly, I've thought a few times about tossing this thing across the room... Was your problem lens a Sigma too?

Vanguy,

I'm pretty sure that Sigma and Quantaray are the same lenses; so this would make complete sense. Thanks for the info!

I'm glad we were able to solve one mystery problem. This forum is great. We should forward this to Pentax for their FAQ. I almost was going to send in my camera to Pentax to get it "fixed" but without the lens. Of course Pentax will find nothing wrong with it and send it back to me.

I thought it was Tamron and Quantaray.

Firmware updated to 1.30; thanks. Still malfunctions.

It's Sigma & Quantaray.

Time to time, i have same issue with my sigma 24-135 2.8-4.5
Its not affecting quality of pictures but is annoying when you browse camera menu,

Try to rotate lens a little or just unscrew it a bit and mount it back.

Hello jvp,

Have you solved this problem?
If yes, how?

I think my Sigma 24mm F1.8 has the same issue.
If you have any update, please let me know.

Thanks for your help.

The issue of my Sigma 24mm F1.8 has been resolved.

According to Sigma Taiwan, there's something wrong with AF/Aperture Ring contacts, and this problem was solved after chaning some parts.
