Setting Picture Line on K10D

Hello..... New user question please,

Which picture line setting would you use when setting up the k10D. I am currently using the MTF setting, but wonder if I should be on the normal setting. Any advice would be most appreciated.

MTF is a good default.

But the reason that there's different settings is that they all serve different purposes. If there was one best setting for all people and all uses, there would be no point in having any options.

What are you trying to accomplish?

TAv rules!

The thing about MTF tho is if you're not using a Pentax FA or DA lens your not gaining any advantage ... no? Other manufacturers (all? :: Sigma, Tamron, dunno about Tokina) don't encode the MTF tables in their lens that the Pentax camera can read, so the camera can't optimize the aperture, negating MTF from really doing its thing.
