K5 Flashing F
Dec 3, 2011

Can't figure this out. I attached lens (smcp-FA50mm f/1.4 autofocus lens) to the camera. Held down the menu button and confirmed that firmware is the latest- 1.11. I noticed the top display only showed a flashing F. When I tried live view the screen says cannot start liveview. The menu works and I can pick options but I cannot take a picture.

Is this possibly a lens issue? I am familiar with changing lenses, I did so often with my Olympus E-330 and never came across this before. I took the battery out and put it back in. Is there something obvious I'm doing wrong here?
