Don't apologise!

You said some (lots of!) interesting and useful things, and it is always good be be clear.

Sorry for the long post! It's laborious for me to post in english, so when I do it, I try to be be as clear as possible but it's not as easy as I'd like. Feel free to ask for clarifications : I'll do my best.

Just in case you didn't noticed, you should take care of the AF focusing issues with IR photography. That's why I opted for K01 conversion : no need for AF adjustment.

It's time consuming to recognize how different subjects and textures will respond in IR : colored hairs and tinted fabrics can surprise you if you're using the optical viewfinder!

Another trick if you don't mind. It's easier to use liveview with an optical magnifier: you can use it comfortably on sunny days with optimum constrat and details.

Thanks for those. The Pentax IR Hotspot information is interesting, although it doesn't cover all my lenses so I'll have to find out for myself.

I have a record of the links you have provided, and I'll be using those sites.

I should test my other lenses some day, but my DA 15mm is always on the K01.

Once again, thanks for all of that.
