The AF160 is in the accessories database in the category for Legacy Genuine Pentax flashes. Link: AF 160.


We do not have entries for flashes in the serial number database.

If you are referring to live view it should theoretically be possible to make it smaller (i.e. read out a smaller area of the image sensor when determining the focus point).

The size of viewfinder AF point is, however, based on physical properties of the hardware based AF sensor in the bottom of the camera and can't be changed.

Not quite correct. The DA* 200mm F2.8, DA*300mm F4 and the DA 560mm F5.6 are officially full frame lenses as attested by Pentax (Ricoh).

New Zoom Lens help..

Do you (really) need a zoom? Otherwise the Pentax DA* 300mm F4 would be a candidate. With the K-1's 36 MP you can crop the image quite a lot to compensate for not having a longer focal length.

The Pentax D FA* 150-450mm zoom is excellent of course, but it weighs twice that of the DA* 300mm and can be somewhat of a pain to lug around.

What you experience is normal for that lens. The focus ring has no hard stop.

Hi Phil,

The hoods in your image are for the K version with 58mm filter size, not the M version with 49mm filter size.

Could you provide a scan of the brochure page that talks about the hood for the M 20mm F4 so that we have the documentation trail in place?

Thanks,
Ole

I agree wholeheartedly. It would be useful (and not just nice) to get feedback whether or not our responses and suggestions resolved OP's issue(s). Not leaving feedback is discouraging and impolite.

@Adam, we have no information on a hood for the M 20mm. None of the five known rectangular hoods will fit. I have fixed the error in the database.

Have you checked the lens for fingerprints?

Has the camera been dropped, which could perhaps cause misalignment of the lens elements?

It might help the troubleshooting if you could post some sample photos.
