Hi,
Encountered this only recently.
When in M mode, F becomes '--'. No Fstops number.
When I turn the dial, F stop did not change, remain at '--'.
If press shutter, the picture shows F1.

It resumes normal after a while...dunno what did I pressed...

Anyone can help here? :dunno:
Thanks

just a guess: maybe no memory card or lens not mounted properly

Memory card was inserted. Cos I still can download and view the pic taken with 'F1'...
Lens not mounted? But doesn't that mean shutter cannot be pressed then?

If you're using manual lenses - the aperture cannot be recognized on your digital camera. If you cannot shoot after fixing the manual lenses - you have to find the setting inside the camera that allows you to shoot using manual aperture setting, ie. by hand.

For Pentax, the setting is found under "Menu > Custom Settings > Using Aperture Ring > Permitted"

Can't help you if you have other brands but should be similar. :dunno:

Even then the F number will show as F-- but at least it works; which is most important. :)

Strange, this problem is rarely encountered when you mount kit lens on the body. :dunno:
I've encountered this when I used an OM lens on my 4/3 body in the past..

Oh...based on your reply and Raskae's, then it seems to be the mounting....
Will wipe down and observe further. Thanks
