I also planed on using my older aperture ring lenses in A mode with my K30 after it got the aperture block issue but it started working again. So I got my KP and will park the K30 till it dies completely. Then I might play with the FA's

Very true, I am almost hoping my K30 aperture block dies completely that way I can use it in A mode with old lenses like K-50, Aperture Ring and Av Mode - PentaxForums.com

and not open it to fix it

Same happened to me, I held it off using AA's but it finally stopped working. I will open it up some day but my new KP is sucking all of my time, as it should.

I like to shoot in "TAV" mode and with the front dial setting shutter speed and the rear aperture with the 3rd dial for +/- compensation. This gives me instant control over all settings

Anyone done any birding shooting jpegs on a K-P

I do all my birding shooting RAW but with LR the processing can be a one button event using User presets. The first time I process a RAW file from a camera I save it as a preset for that camera, then I can apply that preset to all the shots from that camera, adding just a few tweeks if required.

I shoot RAW in P mode with the function dial C1 set to exposure comp. and C2 set for sensitivity. This gives me complete control of all settings with C1 or +/- compensation with C2 and the program line set to MTF (I do override the MTF line and change the aperture to f8 when it gets too small)

K-50, Aperture Ring and Av Mode
Posted By hnikesch

Shucks my solenoid started working again on my K30 (K50 firmware) and AV mode does not stop down a non "A" lens. I guess I'll have to use the green button again. It still seems to be an intermittent problem and that for me is a worst case, I never know what to expect from my K30. It was a good excuse for getting my new KP but letting the K30 rest while playing with the kp seems to enable the solenoid to start working again. For a while anyway. Maybe on a rainy or snowy day I will open my KM and K30 and swap solenoids.
