Re: Samsung GX-10: Really the same as K10d?

Yesterday I received both my Samsung GX-10 and the Pentax 18-55mm WR lens.

After trying it out at home I was very disappointed by the AF performance with both lenses (Samsung 18-55 kit and my brand new Pentax lens). Every picture came out blurry. When I tested it further I noticed severe back focusing with both lenses. Further research on line helped me with the 'debug mode' and focus adjust. I had to adjust it to +120 to focus properly.

Right now the results are very pleasing, but it underexposes quite a bit in most circumstances. Fortunately underexposure is a lot easier to fix than bad AF.

Besides the disappointment at first, which is fixed now I really love this 5 year old camera:

-It looks brand new, not a single scratch
-It feels like it's built like a tank
-External controls galore! So no more menu digging.
-Only 8.920 shutter actuations!

No real pictures yet, but I'm sure that I'm going to have a lot of fun with it.
