I took a trip out this morning to The Mounstberg Raptor Centre and had a great time looking at all the birds of prey.

I'm very pleased with these shots as I had to capture Cornelius through a chain link fence that made shooting a little tricky, as there is also a rope barrier that keeps you back about two feet from the fencing.

K-7 & Metering A Cosina 50mm Manual Lens...

I'm so glad you chimed in and thanks....I think you just might be correct here! My other lenses work fine when I try them in manual on the K-7! Thanks for the tip ;-)



Thanks for your input and food for thought ;-) As mentioned above...other lens work in Manual Mode with a press of the green button!



Thanks Again...I think you have provided a sound reason for this problem ;-)

K-7 & Metering A Cosina 50mm Manual Lens...

Yes I have! Thanks for the suggestion ;-)



Yes...I have set all the settings that I can find...I have done this before on my *istDS2 & my K200D! Thanks for the help ;-)



Marc...Oh yes...I'm very sure I am in M mode. (It's the only mode...LOL) And yes...on all my other bodies...I can get it to work the way it should. This is why I posed the question and am confused that it won't work on the K-7...LOL

Thanks for the info Lowell. I had the same understanding as you have described here, but this is the problem I'm having...the camera will not stop down regardless of what aperture I select and pressing the green button seems to do nothing.

On my K200D when I pushed the green button, there was a mechanical action involved with getting a meter reading and the camera selecting the program line..on the K-7...no mechanical action.

Thanks for the help..I should have mentioned it was a K-Mount Lens. I agree with what you say, but the camera is not responding to any aperture changes I make.



I wish that were the case (well not really..lol), then I would understand what might be wrong.

When the lens is off the camera the blades are perfect and move freely as I select different apertures and press the blade on the mount side. When on the camera...nothing happens??? This has got me stumped!!

Thanks for the help anyway ;-)

K-7 & Metering A Cosina 50mm Manual Lens...

Sorry if this is a repeat question..I did do a search but did not find the specific answer I might need to know!

I have a Pentax K-7 and just mounted a fully manual Cosina 50mm f2.0 on it. I have never used this lens before on the K-7 and I can't seem to get accurate and reliable metering when using this lens.

(This lens has absolutely no contacts on it!)

I am using the camera in manual mode, and set the metering to evaluative, and usually (on my K200D) I could press the green button, and the K200D would get a pretty accurate meter reading and adjust the aperture and shutter accordingly.

Here's what I am finding on the K-7:

No matter what aperture I set the lens at, the camera seems to think the lens is wide open and selects very fast shutter speeds. If I press the green button, I do see some shutter value changes, but they are very fast...suggesting it's reading the lens as wide open. There seems to be no effort from the camera to select an aperture.

At ISO 100..the camera seems to think I need a shutter of 1/3000 or more.

I have tried playing with EV and that really doesn't make to much difference in my opinion.

Am I doing something wrong here?

Thanks for any tips or help you can provide.

Richard

I was approx. 200 feet to the left of the runway (flightpath), and the plane was coming at me during it's landing approach, and would have been about 200 feet above me from where I was standing!

I was so not ready for this shot! This duck was flying up the river just as I arrived, and by the time I had my camera turned on and ready, it was about to land.

I aimed and fired as quickly as I could and was happily surprised that I got this shot to share ;-) A few more seconds and I just might have been able to adjust a few settings and get a sharper image!
