    "In late November of that year my first Pentax arrived, the K20D. I charged the battery, mounted a new FA 50mm f/1.4 lens that I had bought in advance, and was … disappointed and frustrated. The autofocus wasn’t as accurate as I had experienced with the Canon nor as consistently as I had experienced with my digital point-and-shoot. But I persisted, and the results got better. I realized that these were more cases of user error than equipment error, but so often people throw up their hands and blame their equipment. The saying “Patience is a virtue” is especially true when it comes to learning any new piece of equipment or system. Only later did I learn that this particular lens can be a challenge in terms of auto or manual focus, but when I nailed it the results were quite impressive."

    I'm still trying to figure out how to get accurate focus with my K-r & Tamron 17-50mm. Can you give any advice? What user error did you eliminate?

    Thanks in advance,
