You might think about picking up an O-ME53 eyepiece magnifier. My K100D also has a dim & smallish viewfinder & the O-ME53 is a huge help when doing MF. It doesn't improve the VF brightness, but the larger view makes MF quite a bit easier for me.
Finally got one direct from Ricoh in Germany - turns out to be cheaper than any shop I could find. Definitely a good investment, it also extends the eyepiece by quite a bit and makes it a lot easier for me as I wear glasses. Thanks for the tip

Have tested a Auto Chinon MC 50mm f/1.7 which has a Pentax K (PK) mount.

Below are some of the test shots taken with this lens.
The pictures are analog and are taken with a Chinon CG-5, AGFA CINEREX (X-ray film) and developed in X-tol.
Color shots are digital and are taken with a Canon 500D with lens mount adapter.

My review has more and hires images and can be found here if you're interested: Auto Chinon MC 50mm f/1.7 Review
