Re: Feedback on K-5 low light tungsten focussing issue in real life / portrait photos

Hi Dan,

I wonder if there’s two issues with the k5 under low light as there seems to be two levels of error.

Those with very marginal FF under extreme low light like myself (with 3 bodies) which 1.03 completely fixes.

And those like yourself and smeggypants (other forum and PenatxUK forum) who had bodies that showed extreme ff under any kind of redish WB, for who 1.03 seems to not only not help but make it marginally worse.

I think the second case requires a new body as it seems to be a hardware fault, I know smeggypants was getting very frustrated until he returned the camera for a replacement.
