Setting the preview

On page 108 of the K 70 pdf manual it states that the Optical Preview may be activated to "check the depth of field with the viewfinder". When I attempt to do this I see nothing in the view to indicate the depth of field. What, please, should I be seeing? Thanks. The K 70 is a great gizmo and I am more than pleased with its capabilities.

I purchased a Pentak K-70 (great piece of gear) from B&H (great company to do business with) back in May of this year. When the camera arrived I went online to register the camera at the Pentax site, filled out the form and submitted it. The site said I would receive an email - never happened. Several days ago I went back to the Pentax site and checked to see if my camera had been registered and it looks like it is not in their database. I sent a help request to Pentax but never heard back from them. Does anyone know how I can complete the registration? Thanks. -dave

T mount problem

I spoke with a young lady at Bower over the electrical telephone and she suggested that the ring I had was either a clone or outdated. I ordered one from B&H (it looked a bit different with knurls on the outer edge) and it arrived today. And it fits like a glove; no more gap, no more exposed contacts.

T mount problem

I asked this question in the Astrophotography social group and received a few answers but I thought asking in a wider venue might help me further. I am a new owner of a K-70 and purchased a Pentax K SLR / DSLR Deluxe Astrophotography Kit (1.25") from Telescopeadapters.com and it's a very nice kit. However, the t-ring (made by Bower) does not fit flush with the camera body and the lens information contacts are exposed to the dust and bugs and dew. I used the t-ring the other night for some prime focus activity and the next day I had trouble with auto-focus. After cleaning the contacts 3 times with a microfiber cloth the camera worked fine again. Someone at the aforementioned astrophotography suggested buying some o-rings to fill the gap, and I could do that, but I think it would be better to find a t-ring that fits properly, one that doesn't leave the contacts exposed. Any ideas? Thanks

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen

Next week I will be acquiring a Pentax K-70 from B&H. I haven't owned a camera in a number of years and I am itching like a kid the week before Christmas. Many moons ago I owned a Sony DSC 707 and a Meade DSI astronomy dedicated CCD camera. The BIG plan is to use the K-70 for general photo stuff and for astro applications, including but not limited to: tripod mounted very wide field pics and prime focus and variable focus pics using the Pentax K SLR / DSLR Deluxe Astrophotography Kit on my beautiful Celestron 8 inch SCT. I've been browsing the wonderful PentaxForums for a few days and I want to express my appreciation to all of you for sharing your vast knowledge, opinions, and expertise. This place is a treasure chest, so I offer a tip of the hat to the gents, and a deep bow to the ladies - thanks!
