Got my converted IR camera back today

Sent my Pentax K100d into Percision Camera in Belmont Ma to have it converted to 715NM Infrared. The sun is almost down for the night but I went out and got a shot to see how it worked.
Looks as though it will be OK. I also need some new batteries for the camera.

Interesting, very nice!

Do they adjust the AF mechanism so that it focuses correctly at the infrared wavelengths, or do you have to manually adjust focus for each shot?

This is what they said they did. I sent a new 18-55 pentax lens for them to work with.
