    The stock screen gets dark when I stop down to say f/8...I'm just trying to get a gauge on how much darker the S screen would get.

    I don't have any lenses larger than f/1.7. The 2 M42 lenses I have start at f/2.8 (105 mm) and f/4 (200 mm).

    Thanks for the info. I haven't purchased yet.

    Hey SyncGuy....

    I'm still looking into the S screen for the K-r. I've read that this screen gets pretty dark once you get past f/2.8. I have a couple of M42 lenses where manual aperture adjustment is required. So if I want to shoot at f/8 will the screen be too dark to use? Do you use any small aperture lenses.

    Forever zooming with feet! Heck! My camera's always slung on my shoulder, power switch always on the "on", hands "fondling" it every 10mins...

    Sure, i'll walk up and lift the damn cam up to your nose and fire away... ;)
