K5 Screw drive problem


Link Posted 13/11/2011 - 20:45
Hi everyone,

I tried using my Sigma 105mm and 180mm macro lenses on my new K5 today. But the screw drive mechanism does not marry up correctly. All i get is a grinding noise when i try to focus. I've noticed that the drive does not protrude as much in comparison with my K10 & K20. Any one else had this problem ? At any rate, the camera has to go back. I just hope the replacement wont be the same... !

Is the MF/AF/C swith correctly seated?

Yea, switch is seated correctly. Contacted SRS Microsystems today. They will replace the camera, so fair play to them. Fingers crossed the next one will be ok. Thanks for the reply.
