Update - sigma 50 mm 1.8 lens will not attach to the K3-II as well.

Called Pentax support both K3 & K3-II have the same mounts so it should work.

The lens does have an aperture Ring, I have moved the ring all the way over to the A position. The ring does click into place.I have enabled the aperture ring.
When I used it for the first time it did start to work. I was able to shot in landscape but when I tried for portraiture mode it would blink and change the aperture to F-- and not work.

I have a new K-3 and recently purchased a used Sigma 24-70mm F2.8. My problem is when I attached it to the camera and set the aperture value to say F4.0 or any other value the camera lens aperture value flickers and reads F-- . The camera will take a picture but it is black.

Is there a problem with the lens.

I have a K-5, I am going to Niagara Falls to take fireworks pictures.

I will be using a tripod with the K-5 shutter release.

I want to ask what is the best settings to use. I will be using a Sigma 10mm-20mm Wide angle lens.

Any help will be greatly accepted.

Thank You
