Re: Thinking of switching to Pentax from Canon

Someone mentioned that Pentax uses cheap motors in their lenses for AF.  Realizing that everyone has different wants and needs, when I first got my K-30 I used AF all the time.  I tried multi-segment and spot zone and other options.  Now, 90% of the time I use MF.  Why?  I feel I have better control over focus.  I don't have to worry about AF bouncing around, and wondering what it is focusing on.  The K-30 gives me the ability to MF by offering a nice bright viewfinder, something you won't find on a lot of other DSLRs.
