Interesting and thanks for all the replies on this. So far optically nothing seems out of sort. I'll likely keep working with it and if I want to send it in, will do so before the one year warranty is up just to see if they can improve it.

DA 70 Limited Build Quality

This is definitely the barrel. Even when using the focus ring there is a bit of looseness before it catches and moves the barrel in or out. Sounds like it might be worth a trip to Pentax to get checked out.

Just a quick question for others who own the DA 70 Limited. I recently added one to my collection and have noticed that the barrel is a bit loose front to back. When focused to 1.3m the play when lightly pushing/pulling on the barrel is quite noticeable compared to my DA 35. Is this normal for the lens?

K20D Noise?

My K20D does the same thing. It can be minimized with a proper exposure. What does your histogram look like for the example images? I find that shooting RAW and exposing to the right a bit will help a good deal in high ISO situations.

K20D Focus Indicator Lights Misaligned?
Posted By lowbit

I just got a new K20D as an upgrade for my K10D. One thing I noticed right off as a difference, is that the focus indicator lights on the K20D are slightly lower than on the K10D.

By way of illustration, here is sort of what I see when set it to the center point. The dash and the underscore represent the indicator light.

K10D ( - ) K20D ( _ )

Another data point is that, with the viewfinder firmly planted, if I move only my eye to look directly at the far left indicator light it disappears. If I am looking straight ahead I am able to see this light. Again this is a stark contrast to my K10D in which all the lights are bright on consistent no matter where I look in the viewfinder.

It seems like something is misaligned. I am planning to call Pentax tomorrow and see what they say before I decide what to do. Does anyone else with a K20D see something similar?

I have the 540 and I am quite pleased with it. It is my first ever flash but has so far proven quite versatile. I can't say I have any real complaints with the build quality. I fear if they didn't use plastic I'd likely not be able to lift the camera with the flash attached. :-)

Indeed. Thanks for the info. Hopefully I'll see it in a Lightroom update then.

I get the focal length and 35mm equiv. with no problem. Just not the full marketing name of the lens, smc DA 35mm F2.8 etc. What you see in the lens field. This is using Lightroom 2.

I have noticed that images shot with my with my DA 35 on my K10D are missing the lens EXIF metadata. In comparison, the lens EXIF is correct and present in images shot with my DA 21 and my other lenses. Anyone else experience this?

Has anyone had any luck getting the K10D + Grip horizontal noise problem addressed? I have read a number of threads regarding this but all I ever saw was that Pentax was looking into it. Wondering if it worth calling in about.

It is a fine lens. I used it a lot more in my film days but is a bit too telephoto for me on my K10D and ends up sitting on the shelf too often. I am not one to collect really, I just want to hold on to what I use regularly. It's not like I bought it last month and am selling it now or anything. :-)
