focus peaking

Hey gus,

i am new here. There is a question if anyone could help will be appreciate!!

i have been using the K100D, K10D and KX during the past 7 years. And would like to know if it would be easy to handle those old lens with the focus peaking mode. I was seriously thinking to upgrade with an K30.

Many thanks,

Focus peaking will work with all K-mount lenses that have been manufactured since 1975. If you buy an M42 adapter, it will (should?) work with all Pentax screw-mount lenses made prior to 1975.

In the words of Alfred, a K-01 owner, "I find the 3 inch view screen with image magnification and focus peaking superior for manual focusing."

In the words of ElJamoquio, another K-01 owner, "Focus Peaking is Awesome."

Focus peaking in the K-30 is the same as it is in the K-01.

As I've mentioned to one or two others, click this link and scroll down to the "focus-peaked" photos by Alfred (mentioned above) and nparsons13.

You're quite welcome. I hope to see some examples of your focus peaking efforts someday soon.
