Pentax K5iis

I have both K5 and K5 II s. The K5IIs has more clarity in the playback and it is easier to see under the sun but it seems brighter than what actually the image is. The screen of the K5 is more true to the image, I prefer it. K5IIs can find focus in very low light easier and quicker than the K5. But in such low light I can use the assistant lamp in K5. The K5IIs lucks the very useful feature for me of 'Side by side image comparison' that K5 has. You can synchronize, zoom and compare similar images such as bursts in portrait shootings in the same screen. As for the sharpness benefit of the K5IIs, I can not see it in hand held photography that I am used to. I stayed with my K5 as my main camera, K5IIs stays in the closet.

HELIOS-44M front focusing.
Posted By Hidrieus

Thank you for posting the links.
With manual focusing it helps a lot to first disable the option for the central focus point to glow red momentarily, it distracts the eye. I spend quite a time focusing manually every shot and when I could see the subject as best focused as possible in the view finder, checking with Live View in magnification I could affirm that focus was near perfect. But the Green Hexagon was not lighted at this point. I used AF Micro Adjustment for all and now the Green Hexagon lights when near perfect focusing. If the K-5 had adjustment range from -20 to+20 I could adjust it perfectly. Now I am at -10 and it probably would need -12 for perfection.

HELIOS-44M front focusing.

I enjoy photographing with the HELIOS-44M on my K-5. But I have noticed that it is slightly front focusing from the view finder. I mean that when I see the subject perfectly focused in the view finder and the red rectangle glows momentarily with the confirmation hexagon continuously lighting, when I switch to Live View and magnify up to x10 the image needs just a tiny turn of the focusing ring towards the infinity to achieve perfect focus. At the menu feature number 26 'AF Fine Adjustment' there is only the 'Apply All' option. What should I do?
