Hi Graeme,

good on you for resisting to run along with the Canikon crowd.

A client who owns a camera shop looked at my existing 400mm lens, which had some fungus, and threw it in the bin and gave me the admiral.
I hope he acted in your best interest. Especially with older primes, which have pretty straightforward construction, it is often easy to remove fungus or have it let removed for a small price.

It almost seems as though the K10 was slightly out on its focus point.
The K10D is not the fastest to AF. The K-7, e.g., is a lot faster. But you may just experience FF/BF issues with your lens. Check out this article on doing AF fine adjustments. Your K10D supports this too through a hidden debug menu. Not easy/possible to get it right for zoom at all possible settings but you can improve a global offset this way.

BTW, any Kiwi Pentaxians in the Wellington area may consider joining the Wellington Photographic Society. I'm a member and enjoy the programme and the "f-stop" special interest group.
