ff/bf correction for up to 10 lens?

Yesterday when I was reading different news about K-70, I found somewhere info that K-70 will support the ff/bf correction for up to 10 different lens. I cannot found this info anywhere today on any site.

Anyone can confirm or deny this info?

Based on the manual it will support these corrections, just like all other Pentax models have since 2009.

Actually, given that a lot of us Pentax folks are such gear heads, I'm a little surprised that this number isn't higher. On the APS-C camers, by the time you have the DA Limiteds, the DFA 100 and the DA* lenses, you've already potentially used up those slots...

Although I have heard it before (or read it somewhere), I have not seen any one testing the hard limit (number of Pentax lenses) on the AF fine adjustment. I have more than 10 DA/FA lenses with me, some I use rarely like the 10-17. Would be nice if someone can definitively tested the hard limit so we know.

You can actually store up to 20 adjustments, not 10, it turns out. Not sure where the 10 came from!

If you have 15 lenses, do they all need adjustments for BF or FF, is the problem so common ? I'm amazed...

CU,

In over 20 years of using an AF camera, I've never had BF/FF problems, but I routinely shoot with a thick DOF because my style includes context in every image; those who use a thin DOF, to isolate their subject, may have different experience.
