    Both. It's super easy to do MF even in not so good lighting. Pentax cameras have always been providing one of the best viewfinders out there.

    Even their Pentamirrors are great if not better than the rest.

    I have to agree with Sir Randall. BOTH. Sorry for the Star Wars thing.=) Also just found this on dpreview. http://www.bio-images.com/catalog.php

    The National Geographic photographer was using a Pentax DSLR with A very BIG Lens on a swamp/or river i think.

    I try to use MF sometimes but the results are not good. What seems to be clear in the VF doesn't come out as expected; hence, my pure joy for quickshift AF. Think my eyes are getting bad!

    You must give me some MF pointers in our next meet.............

    Have you tried all moving the diopter from side to side? Try moving it to the blurred part and carefully slide it to where your eyes see clearly the object you pointing your lens. Hope this helps. =)

    Zoom in first and focus manually, you will see a green focus lock icon on the VF if you have a successful lock. You'll also hear a confirmation beep if your beeps are enabled. After focus lock, you can zoom out again to your preferred focal length. and capture the image.

    If your having a hard time doing MF, you can opt to buy the magnifying eyepiece. I read good reports about it.

    Also, a center splitscreen Katzeye focusing screen is available for Pentax cameras.

    Oh yea, the diopter is to the far right for me.....the clearest view in my opinion. But I think I'll double check when I get home later.

    Victor also suggested that magnifying eyepiece but how much is it and where can I get one? I'm seriously considering one just to enjoy MF. (I feel old right now! )

    Randall, were you pressing the OK button while you were zooming in and waiting for the focus lock?
