Same thing happened to my 560 also. The pin was bent back. I had to push it inside to keep it working.
I wish Pentax made it durable. I am scared that one day the pin will break. I am.being careful when putting my lens cap and also when mounting the camera

For those who are contemplating a 560, go get it. Even if doesn't capture BIF, it sure will give the owner satisfaction to out gun puny 150-500/500 or 200-500 ;)
Got a new K70 and I feel the IQ and performance better than K-5iis

Here are some from my weekend outing.

Common swamphen


Grey-headed swamphen (cropped to show off the sharpness)


Greater painted snipe (male - yes one of the few species where the female is more colourful)

Female


Citrine wagtail

Wonderful captures.
I have to say the 'purple swamhen' looks different than the ones we see in India.

Wow. This is getting to be a great app.
My request still stays. It will be good to have the UI to distinguish between buttons and labels

The older version worked (able to see camera and images) though I didn't know how to download the images.
Can you also differentiate text and buttons? I don't know which to click and which is just for display. Thanks. Would love to get a version which can download fast.

Good for you. I wish I had that option of trade in in my area too.
May be next year. If I sell the 560, it will be a big loss of money. May be a year down the line, who knows :)

I think so too. The 560 should be super sharp at 8. If any issues, it is probably the purple fringing in bright objects.
Do check for front/back focus issues. If a lot of AF adjustment needed, then send it for servicing/replacement.

Dan. IMO, the 560 should be sharper than even 150-450. Please check for any front/back focus issues.
Here is one from my weekend trip. K-5IIS with 560

Why so wide shots? Did you want to display the habitat?
BR hills, eh? In the sanctuary or the temple? Visiting India?

Wonderful shots. Now I feel I should have just got myself the 150-450 instead of 560 :)

A very rare leopard cat in the wild. I was crouching and had to sit real still when this cat was walking towards me (and my frozen still family) without realizing we were there.
I didn't even check the screen to see if I got the settings correct. Finally it stood still when it saw me. Gave me chance to shoot reasonable picture.
Almost full frame. Slight cropping

K-5iis + FA 300/4.5.

Something beyond settings has happened. Some kind of short circuit, may be.
The fact that you have to set the date and time after putting back your battery shows something wrong with the hardware. You shouldn't have to do this in a properly working camera.
