Nothing spectacular, but I'll add a few to the thread.

This was the camera that finally lured me away from film and Canon. I never looked back. As others have said, it offered fantastic sharpness and colour rendering straight out of the box and b You cannot depend on your eyes if your imagination is out of focus. And bombproof.

Ive been Using the FA*28-70 on my K20D, but sometimes the images are very blur, I focus on some object, but others closer o behind the selected object are sharp, I dont know if this lens needs some focus adjustment, and how this works on the k20d, can somebody tell me how I have to do that? I love this lens, but I cant miss shots because of the focus poblems

You can adjust the K20D for front or rear focus but not both. The instructions for AF adjustment are on page 106 in the manual. If you need to you can download the manual here.

Sometimes the camera wants to focus on something other than your subject. Are you sure that you are getting the little red square of focus confirmation, and it still is out of focus? Then you need focus adjustment.

My K-r seems to have focus problems with artificial lighting, even after confirming focus. My K20D doesn't show that kind of problems, but sometimes its focus is off even after confirmation. I haven't been able to pinpoint why - when I try the same shot the next day, it seems to work fine...

Thats what happens to me, Im gonna try the focus adjustment, and see if it works better,,, I love that lens, but when I see the pictures blurred, I feel so disappointed.

A few with the 20D. Sometimes the focus is spot on, sometime not, but I love the size. I wish Pentax had continued building that size. I had 10D for a few weeks and love that too. I gave it to a nephew. The first and third pic was with a Tamron 28-200/3.8-5.6 LD @ 200mm. The second was with a DA 18-55.

The eyes on the bird are sharp and that's what counts.

Thanks Steve, I try but get many more unsharp pics. I've seen sharper by others here. Just have to keep on sharpening my technique. .....pun intended.
