Does the K200D have front/back focus adjustment like K20D?

Hi

I would like to know if the K200D has front/back focus adjustment capabilities?

Thanks!

In a word, No.

I think if the camera body *and* all the lenses are accurate by themselves, the function is useless.

Just say my K100D has no FF/BF focus with all of my original Pentax lenses (a dozen of), after I had tried numerous *ist D and DS bodies (different units). Still, now problems only happened when I shoot under tungsten light where Front Focusing would occur, but then even the body has a memory function, it would NOT help in this case.

So the K20D's FF/BF adjustment function will be useless also?

I read somewhere that K20D allows you to fine tune/adjust the FF/BF of each lens and save the settings to memory. Am I mistaken?

I agree with you Rice,

In my opinion you really want the lenses to focus as accurately as possible. That way if you suddenly need a new body right before an event you aren't stuck with another problem.

I just hope that the lens manufactures don't start cutting corners assuming that everyone will just adjust the camera instead of fixing the problem.
