I love every single piece.

As per my K10d, sad to say it cannot properly auto focus either my F 50/1.4 or 1.7, a problem with Back Focusing, all other AF lenses work beautifully.  However, both these lenses work well and auto focus perfectly on my K-m.

Just acquired the Pentax K20D, works beautifully.  I can pretty much say, that images from the K10D are just wee bit better at ISO 100, you will not see any “grain” from the K10, very smooth finish and tonality of images.  The K10 is also, IMHO, better as per Auto White Balance… but the K20 allows you to adjust Auto Focus for up to 20 different lenses, and this is priceless to me!!!

Update 11/07/2011 – K20D Rocks at ISO 1600, no doubt!  It still, IMAO, sucks at ISO 100, acceptable images rendered maybe only 50%.  BTW, I never use the Extended Dynamic Range option… Also, picked up a nice tight Pentax A 35-105 f3.5 with “Macro” mode, this lens is a winner, just from a handful of photos, I can already see the sharpness, colors are super smooth, contrast surprisingly slightly low. Heavy, very heavy but not the largest lens I own, but trust me when I say this baby is heavy.  Also, it only takes about a 1/4 turn of the focusing ring to go from minimum to infinity, so focusing is a bit tougher and very critical, I have found to optimize the focusing/IQ, you should select the correct SR focal length…

Got a Stormtrooper White Pentax K-x, still checking it out, taking it for spins but does a nice job at higher ISO’s…
