Decided to try my old Tokina 100/300 PK mount with K10D.The little red square in the centre of the viewfinder is excellent and combines with the beep and green spot when in focus.

Handheld on overcast day at 300 mm end of zoom as are other 2 shots.

Doesn't look like you'll have any trouble with the manual focus - nice flowers. I really like the first one.

Thanks.

Still looking forward to my new Tamron 70/300 macro but it all helps to familiarise with the camera.

Thanks Roy.

Looks like I made a mistake in focal length as Picassa2 says 135mm for all 3 shots.

My Pentax Photo Browser switches off whenever I turn it on so will have to find out the problem there.

Rally like the 1st one. Great DoF.

The second one looks dark pink to me, rather than purple. Could just be me.

Thanks Darren

It's the old White balance/Purple flower trick.

Will have to customise with grey or white card.

Had the same problem with the S2.
