Hi Lowell, I think I'm missing something here. On my k200d there is a switch just below the raw button the has Mf & AF, is there another switch or a way to control this?

Thanks.

Tuggie
sorry if I confused you. The k10 and *isdD have 3 positions. Follow Marc's advice

On the K200D you must first set catch in focus to yes in the custom menu, it's number 22. Then set the focus switch to AF.S. Hold the shutter button down all the way with a manual focus lens and it will fire when focus is achieved.

On the K200D, just put the switch in the AF position. Assuming it is otherwise set up for manual lenses, you are now in catch in focus mode - press shutter button, picture won't be taken until something is in focus.
Thanks Marc

I think it's a silly thing not to enable all focus points with A lenses. That would be nicer in order to use the "catch in focus" setting and would allow easier composition.
The problem with a 'matrix' CIF is that the shutter would fire whenever ANY of the focus points had a hit. Now, if a specific point could be selected as the hot-point, we'd be better able to control compositions in-camera. Write to Pentax-Ricoh, tell them you want selectable CIF points! That should take only a minor firmware rewrite. Until then, shoot with the subject centered, and compose in PP, ie, crop it.

That would be so useful when shooting fast lenses wide open

Yes I know there a ways to deal with the issue but if i'm using a 50mm lens, that's not to crop the picture in post processing...
