Mikesul: I did all that.

Just wondering: did anybody else contact support with this issue? Maybe US support will have different answer?

After sending Ricoh UK quote from page 90 of the manual:
How to achieve correct exposure with aperture ring not set to A:
1. set the mode dial to M
2. set the aperture ring to desired aperture
3. press green button, the correct shutter speed will be set
4. If the correct exposure cannot be achieved adjust ISO sensitivity

I got another reply today:

Thank you for contacting Ricoh Imaging.
We have forwarded your case to our product specialists for investigation. They will test the camera in the same situation as you described.
After the testing is done we will get back to you with an advice. If you are in need of further assistance, please respond to this email or call our technical support center.

Sincerely,
Ricoh Imaging Technical Support


Now I'm waiting for the product specialist take on the problem :).

When I saw that reply in my inbox my first thought was: Did that guy ever held Pentax DSLR in his hand?

Hello all. Long lime lurker but this one made me log in and reply.

I asked that question to Ricoh UK and got a reply. This is copy/paste from the email I got:

Thank you for contacting Ricoh Imaging.
Herewith we inform you that in "M" mode the camera doesn't adjust any settings because in "M" everything should be set manually.
What you would like to achieve should be possible in "Av" mode.

If you are in need of further assistance, please respond to this email or call our technical support center.

Sincerely,
Ricoh Imaging Technical Support



What do you make of that?
