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

@Philnw2

Thanks for that informative answer. I've also considered switching brands to the D7000 because of less reported issues (i think), lens availability and investments long-term viability with nikon, but i'd miss that level correction, the body's build quality (which i find a little less on the nikon) and compact size, shake reduction for primes, which you can't get at nikon for 50mm f1.4 as an example.

One of the main motivation for upgrade are like these dim tungsten light outside terrasse headshots with the fa 50mm, where the k200d hunts focus a lot and misses like 2 extra iso stops...

I guess your K-5 copy's quite fine, or at least not having negative impact on your low light photography, which is encouraging.
