auto focus adjustment on k-5 II

Hi Everyone,

I have a K10 and I am considering going to the k5ii later this year.

I am currently having back/front focus problems with different lenses. I seems that each lens, at full aperture, has it's own setup needed ! ! ! ! Not very good.

I have a 70-300 fa pentax zoom, 50mm 1.4 pentax prime, a 35mm 2.4 da rime, an the 18-55 da al kit lens.

It seems that each one needs a separate adjustment using debug. This is very annoying.

Can anyone confirm that with the K5II, I will not have these problems ?

I have read several auto-focus posts in a gazillion places..... but not much is said about the k5II focus situation.

Any feedback will be appreciated.

On the K-5, you will be able to adjust the focus setting for each individual lens. FF/BF depends on both the lens and the camera, so it is quite likely that you will need different adjustments (or possibly no adjustments at all) on a different camera.

The K-5II is a world apart from the K-10D when it comes to focus. Your problem will be gone, adjustment or no adjustment.
