Question - is Pentax the only ...

... camera with built-in shake reduction that adjusts the SR according to the focal length of the lens?

This is fantastic if so!

The specs from Steve's... stated:
'To provide shake reduction, the cam must know the focal lenght of
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 ?
