flash compensation. They're not really guesses, I'm looking at the histogram and looking where to expose my subject. So usually that method works 99% of the time if I really can't use existing light which is so rare for me considering iso 1600 is useable.
So you find yourself able to shoot indoors with ISO 1600?

I don't mind the k20d at 1600... the grain can look old-school. On the other hand, i really prefer available light. Would you recommend the lens to someone else?

Yes, if you know what the hell you're doing and aren't a newb otherwise the lens will drive you nuts with you thinking the lens is super soft. After f5.6 it's actually one of the sharpest lenses I've seen. The lens isn't for the faint of heart it is cruel

to you at first and you have to listen to it focus and know your lighting in the viewfinder. It's not just a Nikon set to shoot 100 shots and hope one came out. I shoot it in Av mode and watch the shutter until it doesn't move much at all and then pray to

Pentax-sama and usually he blesses me with a nice picture. When he doesn't I take out the A50 and then threaten to move to Canon, Nikon or if I'm really mad at losing a pic, Sony or Olympus.
