K-3 incorrectly reports battery grip battery dead

After a closer reading of the manual, I found this comment on page 13:


Memo
"It is recommended to turn off the battery grip when using the camera in a position other than the vertical position as the switch may accidentally be pressed."


This all makes more sense - the power switch on the battery grip only turns the grip on or off, and is not meant to turn the camera on or off.


That'll teach me.

What is the correct number at Ricoh to call for this issue?

I bought a K-3, and a brand new D-BG5 battery grip from Adorama. When the battery grip is used with rechargeable batteries (that work fine in my K-5ii with D-BG4 battery grip) the on-off button on the grip will not turn the camera on or off. I have firmware version 1.21.

The EXIF should be in this image. 1/60 @F11, ISO400, 35mm. I've been playing with it in LR3, but I just don't really know what I'm doing or where to begin. Thanks for any advice you can offer.

Thanks. I'll add the exif as soon as I can.
I rarely have any issues with my Pentax lenses. Could the Sigma coatings or construction be a factor too?

I'm having difficulty figuring out how to add the photo from my iPad. Instead of letting me browse to photos, the link is asking for a url. Can you tell me how to add a photo that is on my iPad?

Please see the attached photo. The sun is clearly reflected somehow in the lens, and apparent in the ghosted image at the bottom right. Can anyone tell me how to fix this with LR3, and better yet, why it happened / how to prevent it with this lens? Hood was on. No filter. Sigma 18-35mm f1.8.

D FA 100mm F2.8 WR Macro, or DA 35mm f/2.8 Macro Limited?

Thank you for the helpful advice and links. Based on all of the advice received so far, I'm leaning toward the HD 35 Limited, because it sounds easier to use, and most of my macro shots are going to be of watches, not flowers or bugs. Thanks!

Is there a place to see side by side comparisons of images shot with the D FA 100mm F2.8 WR Macro and the Pentax DA 35mm f/2.8 Macro Limited?
I'm looking for a macro lens for my K-5ii, but need help deciding which to buy.
The price on either is excellent right now. It looks like some dealers might run out of the 100mm.

Firmware Update V1.06 for K-5II/K-5IIs

I took my K-5 II with 1.6 out yesterday with my "new" FA 50mm 1.4, and I'm not crazy about the results. It had difficulty focusing on a church steeple that was about 500 yards away in broad daylight. Not sure if this is a problem with the firmware, the lens, or the operator!

I also seem to get more purple fringing with this setup than I was getting with my old K-5 and kit lens. Shooting raw and reviewing in LR3. Again, new camera, new lens, and new firmware, so I can't say for sure what causes the problems.

Thinking about going back to 1.5.

Using the camera today with v 1.06, and after powering down and changing lenses when I switched power back on rear display did not come on. I had to remove battery and then it seemed to fix itself. Seems like there might still be some stability issues.

Can anyone explain why the Pentax US website recommends v1.04 (Downloads & Literature - RICOH Imaging) while the Japan site offers v1.06 (http://www.ricoh-imaging.co.jp/english/support/digital/k-5_2_s.html)??

My new K-5 II came with v 1.0, which seemed to work, then I updated to 1.05 as soon as I had the chance, and now I'm using 1.06 and everything seems fine.
