wave length is as close as the test condition would allow - ie, on a cloudless day the near and far subjects are both illuminated by direct sun light, with no cast shadow on the testing side. Of course you have to allow whatever light variation there is between the 2 photos.
Try it for yourself, if you have a lens that BF close us, adjust it so it's spot on, and then see if it FF on a far object.

I returned the K-5 shortly after doing a series of test photos. The K-x and K20D both outperformed it significantly in low light (V1.03 firmware). As mentioned previously, I had no FF/BF issues with the K-5 in daylight, at any distance, with any lens. I just had FF in tungsten light.

I've posted this on the other thread, but thanks Katsura for your test here! .. So my questions again:

Can one conclude that the garanteed solution is using the micro focus adjustment (taking in consideration how far the subject is) ??!
Or LV.. or finally, maunual focusing ??!

Btw.. Is that Canon manual focusing screen the only one there ?
I haven't got a K-5 yet, still using films! .. Is the K-5 II really better regarding FF ?!

Thanks everybody for the valuable tests and photos, much appreciated!

Get the K-5 II (or IIs), and you won't have to worry about tungsten light, plus you will have much better AF in dim conditions, i.e. -3Ev for the K-5 II vs. hit or miss -1Ev for the original K-5.
