Well I've tried several things. Yes, it is screw drive. I checked the AF knob and it seems secure and everything works when I attach another lens to the k5 body. The new 55/300 also works fine when I attach it to an older, slower and clunckier *istD body. We're going to the camera store today and see what they say but Pentax is not abundant here. thanks to you all for the effort.

I switched out my Pentax battery for a newer and fully charged ProMaster battery which I use while the Pentax is charging. No luck. I should have mentioned earlier that I had no trouble when I attached this lens to my istD body. Worked fine the first time.

Battery is fully charged but might be old. I cleaned the contacts on both the lens and camera. No luck. Thanks though.

I just received this lens after a long wait on a backorder. The AF function doesn't seem to be engaging. It make an initial search then seems to disengage and what I think is the motor just spins, The only thing I can do is to remove the battery to stop it. A note to B&H suggested to remove the lens, turn the camera off for two minutes, reattach the lens and turn the camera back on. Didn't work. Send help. Thanks

It's still a few weeks off (Aug 21) but I'm curious to know about how to photograph this event. Equipment, settings, and especially how the sensor might be effected or damaged. It's not likely I'll travel where I'd get to see a total but I'm close enough to get a pretty complete partial.

Hello to you all. Bear with me this is my first thread so hear goes. I'm looking to upgrade from an older Tamron 70/300mm for my K5 and I'm looking at two Pentax options. One is described as pulse AF (PLM) and the other is described as Screw drive AF. How does Pulse work and is it compatible with a K5?
