Auto Focus Adjustment

There have been lots of posts on people adjusting their camera's focus to match that of a specific lens (the K-5 allows for up to 20 different lenses), but not much on how to go about doing this. The link below not only explains the process, it also provides down loads to charts you print out and use for free. Enjoy!

Hi Tom,

Just so you know the articles section isn't a place to post links- your post should actually be an article if you'd like to add to this section. I've therefore moved this to the lens section, where I'm sure you'll get more comments on your blog post.

After much experience of adjusting AF on K10d/K20D and K-5s and using and even making charts, I've found that charts are unnecessary. Simply Auto focus on a few things in good light at an angle and adjust till there's no FF or BF. Something with print on like a packet of cereal is good for example.
