Well, this seems to have worked for you, but dedicating a camera body to a singlelens that costs only a fraction of the body does not seem a viable solution to me personally, but it you are satisfied, that is what is important. The K20D allows you to do this adjustment yourself for each of several lenses without losing the ability to use others, which is one of the chief reasons for owning an slr in the first place. You can buy a good quality smaller and lighter superzoom p&s with similar range for less than what you have invested in your combination.

I like every shot posted. The focal range is quite large and seeing how well it does I don't think the need for another lens would be in order. This set-up becomes the extreme in P&S. Sharp and vivid.

Hi Penolta!

It's something "New" reading that the newer K20D gives to you or all owner the great possibility to "Calibrate" the sensor location 100% to any Pentax mount lens that you already own or acquired...that is great.

Maybe during a future I will change my K10D fro the K20D one, but for today YES...as all of you wrote to me...my "Calibrate P&S K10D" satisfy all my needs. Mostly as "HATE" dust/dirt on the sensor or looking black spots in my shoots...yes it's true...that ONLY we can see such black spots if we are using smaller F stops & with a lot of "Sky" background...but for me...knowing that are there also IF I don't noticed...makes me feel mad & very unhappy...Folks It's me...can't change now at very near 65 years old...Sorry!!!

Dear buddies Simon & Dawg...thanks so much for your heart full input!

Peace,

Alex 007:|

Congrats to your friend a job nicely done, clean bright and focused shots now

not a procedure recommended for those without knowledgeable skills though

better to stick with software like focus magic :-)and photo toolkit to

take care of the dust spots until they get so much that the sensor needs cleaning.



Dust and air pollutant's always seemhave a way to get on to the sensor

even if the lens never comes off, and zoom lenses have to let air in and out

in order to zoom in and out

shots..............musket.

Yes!

It's also true...but I dust off the inner lens barrel moving 15 times from 28 > 300mm & using this type of US made "Duster Off" aerosol can!. Also my method it's NOT so recommended for photographers without a lot of experiences...

Now I really trust that for a long time...my sensor will be free of any dust particles

Below i will ad a photo of my particularly Duster that I use & succeed/come through extremely well with the job...but...but...it's NOT recommended to all of you...as must be use extremely carefully without 'AGITATE IT AT ALL"...:G

Peace,
