K10D Program lines

I know that for my P3 and my ZX-L there were nice charts in the maual that showed you just what values the camera picked for aperture and shutter speed for a given EV. Has anyone found charts like this for the K10D. I sent a message to Pentax but the reply I got seemed to be from someone who did not have a good grasp of the question.

I can't say for sure, but I know that the k100 is much more "program" driven, and the k10 is much more "user input" driven.

Drawing blanks, but I did find an .pdf "photocopy" of your P3 manual.

Looking for the K10D version of the attached charts? Feel free to steal this scan and re-request info from Pentax. Alternatively, one could empirically re-create the charts for their own specific lenses.

Where did you find that? It looks like it came from a users manual, but not the one I have. If I ask for it from Pentax what exactly do I ask for?

Page 126-127 of the manual for the PZ-1p Camera Body.

The chapter is "Others/(4)Specifications. Right at the end of the book.

Each Graph is individually labelled:
Program Line (Normal Program);
Program Line(High-shutter-speed-priority Program);
Program Line(Depth-of-field-priority Program);
Program Line(MTF-Program).

I'm off hunting for that file now. Is there any certainty as to whether things were changed much for the K10D? Even if there was this gives me a place to start. Thanks for your help.
