Same problem with me, but with KR and 50M2, when i try 50A1.4, it is fine.
The temporary solution is to switch between AV and M mode.
I talked to Pentax distributor but they cannot find the solution. Feel so bad, i mean, we keep buying pentax and now our old lens wont work.
Just like pain on a**

Hi Chaz.

I have had occasional problems with the manual lens I use. The image in the viewfinder didn't go blurry but dimmer. I am pretty sure this is the aperture blades sticking.
???? The viewfinder image is *supposed* to get dim when you meter a manual lens - that's because it works by stopping down. it would only be a problem if the image *stayed* dark after metering, and indeed, that would likely be a lens problem, not a camera one.
