It is likely that I have to change plan for a 2nd body.
Originally I was betting on a new K100D to be paired with my manual lens A300F4 plus a new manual focus screen. With 2 bodies, my present DL will only handle AF lenses.
I am also to get a new focus screen for that purpose from Ira.
I was betting that the new K100D will have the same screen setup as DL. Wrong Acording to a couple of new post in other forum, it is not.

Now DL is going for around US$300 and K100D at US$619 (body).
I may as well forego SR and get another DL ?
Anyone has a spare DL lying around?
That is out of the blue.
I am pondering Plan B.

Well...a DL at 300$ is a very good deal.

It's your choice of course, but you could get the K100D and use the DL for manual focus. (I heard the AF on the K100D is faster and more accurate)
That way you could use your focus screen.

The focus screen is for manual and SR (of K100d) works better with my only manual 300mm prime.
I just have to figure it out when I have got the focus screen from Ira. Not an ideal situation but I should be able to work it out. Why Pentax bother to put in a differnt and slightly smaller focus screen for K100D. Mind-bogging. Maybe there is more people using DFA or F or FA lens than manual (A, K & M) .
