Shake Reduction greyed out in new K3 (stills

I bought from an official retailer. The box had been opened presumably to check that everything was there. (Shutter count was 0).

I eventually found the aperture ring item in the last menu and it works. That was a most pleasing feeling, that all is well now. And I updated the firmware.

Happen to be at a car dealers for a recall service right now. The car industry updates what they manufacture so that if you buy after a recall the recall matter is fixed before delivery, and you do not get a recall for your shiny new car the day after you take it from the dealer.

I know that. See my comment about cars and recalls just above.

Anyway, I am happy now, it does what I want. And it is so much better to focus that the old camera. I could focus properly last night in dimmish indoor light which had always been a challenge before.

Now, something even more interesting. I mounted the 18-55 kit lens from my K100DS and shake reduction and the menu item were ON when switched on.

How do I get SR with the genuine Pentax m42 adapter in?

Since the last entry I put here I found another post on another thread saying that a firmware update might do the trick.

I now have firmware 1.03 installed, and still the same effect. Beats me why I buy a product and the supplier installs a version of the firmware which they have already superseded. When I buy I should have the up to date version shipped to me!

Thanks for the suggestion. I have the settings in 'single frame shooting', so this does not seem to explain it.

I have even, since, tried 'reset' on the menu settings in the two different menus where 'reset' appears, thinking that would get me back to factory default which I would have though included SR not greyed out.

I saw a thread re shake reduction being greyed out in movie mode.

I just got my K3 today and find the shake reduction setting is greyed out in the menu and on the screen - and set in 'off'.

I like to use SR.

I have an M42 adapter in the mount with an SMC Tak on.

I think I must have some setting or switch wrong. I have MF (but same happens for AF on switch).

Other than this - initial impressions are very good. Much easier to focus than previous camera. I will be reading the manual in the next few days, but there did not seem to be any instruction re the SR issue using the index and thumbing through.
