Re: I have same problem with Voigtlander 58/1.4

I assume everybody in this thread is aware that the native  viewfinder mask is only able to work to f2.8 ?

Below that the DoF is just not resolvable so MF below that is impossible to.

Ergo if your trying to MF through the VF below f2,8 then either give up.

If its important to you then buy a decent focus screen before you report an issue.


I don't think Pentax produce a MF screen these days just placement screens.

me , mi, ml and mf 60 screens.

Pentax screens cater for the 99.99% of owners who exclusively AF giving a bright and colourful rendition of the target, but not below f2.8
