I decided to try an old tamron sp 28-80mm lens on my k20d. When I install the lens then power on, the menu screen asks for a focal length. I did some searching but not sure what to set this at. Any help would be appreciated.



Thanks!!!

Set it at the longer focal length. The camera uses this information to set the Anti-shake.

Agreed, the K-series manuals have all said set it for the longest focal length the lens is capable of.
