Thanks for your suggestions about the body/lens fit. I would LOVE to walk in to a store and discuss this with sombody, but have found nary a Pentax DSLR in sight in any store in Chicagoland (if anybody know of one, please advise). As for why I used Yvon's "Autofocus Adjustment Chart" (PENTAX DSLRs: PART-1. Autofocus Adjustment charts for front and back focusing problems. Good for Pentax, Canon and Nikon.), I followed those directions assuming that is what it was designed to help with. Using his chart, the line at zero (0mm) should be sharp, but when I tested, the line at 8mm was sharpest. With adjustment it was better, but still sharpest at 2mm. I simply don't have confidence my setup was spot on, but I will retest and try to post an example.

Thanks again,
You might give PJ's Camera a call. They may let you special order a lens or body and try it in the store when it arrives. But make sure to ask if they have a "restocking fee" if you don't want it.
