new k-x came! shots with manual lens + question

Hey folks,

pretty excited about my new k-x - haven't had much chance to play with it yet, but here are a few shots, all taken with a pentax-M 1:1.7 50mm (mostly taken at f2.0)

ISO 1600 test shot:


shake reduction test, 1/5 s exposure (cropped):


playing with DOF:


Here's my question - I have not been able to get "trap" focus to work - no matter what AF setting I use, pressing the shutter button causes it to take a pic right away. Am I missing something?

thanks to all.

From the Kx manual:



If you are using your manual focus lens -
perhaps there are objects in the frame (at the AF sensor positions) that are already in focus?

that would be my guess as well...that something in the 11-point AF locations is in focus. To bypass that you would need to either set to center, or choose your focus point via the rear lcd. keep us posted on the results!

wait, you mean you're supposed to read the manual first??

I had missed the setting under the custom menu, works like a charm, thanks!
