You are right, it is not very hard :) Just harder than autofocus, but otherwise it is fine.
And what like so much is that this lens is very sharp where it should be. See a 100% crop from one of portraits:

This photo shows extreme field curvature of this lens. Notice that in the center focus is at buildings far away, while close to edges it is on a fine net which is just about 1 meter away :)

Finally I got mine in my hands :)
This is one of first shots. Works fine on APS-C. It is going to be fun.

40 degrees yesterday? Nice :) It's -13 today on the opposite side of the Earth.
Thank you very much for pictures, this is what I was thinking about! :)
I'll order mine today.

Hold on! :)
If you setup a tripod and swap cameras, then the result will be more or less equivalent to cropping in postprocessing.
I was thinking more about approaching the same scene/subject, and then creatively framing/composing with one camera and then the other. Changed sensor size may force you to "zoom with your feet, etc". This is something that I cannot predict without Sol 45 on my K-70.

BTW, I feel more and more convinced to buy this Sol 45.
I spend long time debating on this because usually I'm a fan of wide angle shots. 45 mm on APS-C is definitely far from wide angle :) But if it is giving nice results, I'll try it.

So please take some pictures with Sol 45 and KP. I'm considering Sol 45 but I have K-70 only.
I can crop sample pictures from Sol45 to see what will be left on APS-C. But typically photographer with the same lens but different sensor size will change the composition. This is why I'd like to see some pictures really taken with your KP - when you were actually looking with cropped angle of view while taking the picture.

K70 aperture block?

I bought this camera in US. Actually failure happened in last weeks of US warranty. But shipping camera there and back would cost more than the repair in Poland. I bought more Pentax equipment this way so I can say that I saved more on price differences anyway :)

K70 aperture block?

My K-70 aperture control failed in late August. I sent it for repair to authorized service in Warsaw. Unfortunatelly it was out-of-warranty repair, ~140 USD (517 PLN).
BTW, interesting how reliable is new electronic aperture control in 55-300 PLM lens. More reliable then in-body mechanism? Time will tell.
(I have this lens, so I was able to shoot some photos even after body failure.)
