Auto Focusing problems with the K10D may be more of a perception that reality.

Hi Pentax friends,

Eversince I designed the Auto Focus chart and made it available free for downloading, I have received many favorable comments and thank you emails. I just wanted to post the following email received today from a reader named Charles G Clark.


"Yvon,

I posted a message on the Pentax Forum about focusing issues with my K10D. One of the responders sent the link to your website so I could download and test my auto focus. I did the tests last night.

I am surprised at the results. I tested my 16-45mm first. It focused correctly. I then tested my 50-200mm. It focused correctly. Finally, I tested my old tamron 70-300. It focused correctly.

I am left questioning why I thought I had a problem. I am afraid I had become one of the people listening to the woes of other Pentaxian posters.

Thanks to your test cards and a methodical testing approach, I have regained my confidence in my camera. It really feels good.

Chuck Clark"
