Focal Length

Hey all, when you use the K100d in Manual mode and it asks for focal length, do I put in the focal length of the lens I use or do I compensate for the censor size and add x.5 length due to the smaller CCD?...thanks

the length of the lens your using, Jim.

If the size isn't listed use the closest one.

Put in the actual focal length. In other words if you are shooting with a 50mm, put in 50mm NOT 75mm.
