K100D AF/MF SWITCH STUCK IN AF - Digital Cameras


Answers :

1)\015\012If it is a manual focus lens, you need to turn off Autofocus on the\015\012body of your K10D. On my K100D, there is a switch on the side of the\015\012lens mount that says [-MF or -AF]. "-MF" is manual focus mode &\015\012"-AF" is autofocus mode. Since your lens doesn't have autofocus\015\012capability, turn it to the "-MF" mode.

Also . . . When I press "Menu" and go to "Custom Setting", I change two settings . . .

1)\015\012I change "Using aperture ring" to "Permitted". This allows you to use\015\012manual lenses (M lenses) that do not have an auto(exposure) setting,\015\012and also lets you use Auto lenses (A, KA, KA2, FA, etc.) in either the\015\012Auto or manual aperture setting modes.

2) I change "Fl with S\015\012lens used" so that even with a manual focus lens, although I don't have\015\012autofocus capability, my K100D beeps and shows a little red square in\015\012the viewfinder when I have successfully focused manually!

The K10D should have the same options.

This should get you up and running!

I have had a load of fun with my old lens on my new digital Pentax!

I have an SL620 Samsung Digital camera, when I try to take pictures I can't due to it saying card locked.
