pentax k-r af fine adjust

hello everyone
I own a pentax k-r since late May, it's my first DSLR. I was not very happy with it until now. Camera is user friendly, fast and reliable. The only flaw, a big one in my opinion, was the slight out of focus issue. Using a chart that I downloaded from AlettA Photographic I finally resolved that problem. I had to adjust my K-r 5mm on back focusing. Now it's spot on, very happy with it. It was the best 99 cents I've ever spent. I highly recommend everyone to try this out before doing anything else if you got a focusing issue.
Best regards

Very true. A focus test can be helpful.
