The specs from Steve's... stated:

the lens in use. F, FA, D-FA and Da automatically relay this info
to the cam. ....K100D allows users to manually input focal lenght
via SR-menu....'
My conclusions in using foreign lenses (non-Pentax):
K10D SR won't work.

K100D SR only works with fixed focal length lenses.

Is it possible that my conclusions are richt ?

The K10D SR should work the same as the K100D SR - I suspect that as long as you manually input the focal length it will function with any lens, even a zoom if you use it at the FL you have set. As I don't have the K100D I can't test this. Anybody out there who can try a non-Pentax lens on a K100D and report the results?
