Pentax X90 Zoom Settings

The Pentax X90 is a great camera but it has no zoom indicator on the lens (like the Canon x30IS). Setting the zoom to a prefixed value is thus difficult. However when you twitch the zoom lever in front of the shutter release, the camera does momentarily indicate the zoom setting, from 1.0x to 26x in 23 fixed steps.

Now I often want to shoot at a neutral zoom of around 50mm (35mm equivalent) and I rather like shooting portraits at around 90mm - 135mm (35mm equivalent). To assist I have created a small table which fits in the camera bag. It has helped me a lot, and it may help you too. The table is attached so you can see it and print it out for yourselves.
