 I just purchased the FA 75/2.8  Used  and the lens will focus up to about 10 feet but its not focusing out to infinity. It looks blurry when you focus out to infinity. You can hear the motor in the lens turn to focus but not past the mid distance of about 10  feet and not after that
  2nd Issue:  I am using 2 Sandisk SD cards both 16GB. one slot says 999 and the other shows correct .
   Any help is appreciated.  Thanks    The lens is used and rated at Excellent -    Thank you

Can you manually focus with the FA 75mm?

Have you done a hard reset on the settings in the 645D?

Is the shots available issue after formatting both cards in camera?

  Hi Joe, Manual focus ok. I believe I found the problem. The AF points 2 were showing up when I tried to AF and did not out to infinity. Then I changed the AF focal point to 1 center one and the lens did AF out to infinity. I can't understand that. But now its ok.
   One of the Senior Forum members on the Pentax forum explained how I can get Faster Playback. set 1 SD card to RAW + and the other SD2 card to Jpeg and it works faster. But the Jpeg SD2 card reads 999   Is that normal for what I want to do?   Also, does the SD 2 card get the images on it in jpeg or no?

  My question to you is:   If the ISO is set to 200 rather than base of 100 is there ant difference in the IQ from 200 ISO?  I would not think so but let me know what you think.  Thank you for your help.
