K20D and oldies

as oldies I mean my film gear (very modest, I know): FAJ18-35, FA24-90 and FAJ75-300 - all below average anyway... until now: no go with K100D and with K10D- but some design differences between Sony CCD versus Samsung CMOS was so interesting that I today made a stroll with elderly exclusive :-)
And I was really amazed (not only with cheap glass as it is as it is...) with K20D once again... PF and most of CA gone- and yes I know, why...

and another fun for me: even with FAJ75-300 awful focusing gear K20D did a superb AF-C job (neither K100D nor *ist could not cope) with ducks on the pond- and of course ISO2000 was enough for 5x7 prints- YYYYeeeeSSS!!!
Best and happy shooting, JR

Interesting to know ... I have the FA-J 75-300 ... and it does reasonable well on my K10D (better than many other copies I have seen) .... so pairing mine on a K20S would probably net really amazing results.
