Newest download of the AF Charts.

When I introduced my Auto-Focus charts, It was both accepted by many people but also discredited by others. I received many constructive comments and suggestion, and some were incorporated in the current design.

The time I took to design the charts was to help other Pentaxians. I sent the charts to Pentax and asked them for an opinion. Because Pentax is International, with the head office in Japan and also because they now are owned by Hoya, I will not mention the names at Pentax but here is the email received from them.

Hi, Yvon.

Actually the chart worked just fine for me. A co-worker also tried it. Hes an old hand with the popular one on DPReview, but he says your chart seems just fine. He and I both liked that it folded out to a 45 angle block, which seemed to make the process pretty easy.

Thanks for working on this and making it available.

Best regards,

~~~~~ PENTAX Imaging Company



You can check and download the charts for free here: AF Charts
