comment How does one get manual focus right with a fast-aperture lens?
I was also trying to find out what focusing screens are and how they can be helpful in my case. Do they fit into the viewfinder? Do you need live view? Do they just make things easier or improve somehow the limit of the viewfinder (having a fixed DOF)?

I think this is the best explanation to what happens with my gear. Do camera specs provide the value of the fixed depth-of-field? I haven't found on the specs of Pentax K10D.

Sure, but the problem persists with small objects.

Definitely, the focus indicators help, however when DOF is narrow and objects are small, such suggestions are not very precise.

I'm using a Pentax K10D. I've just noticed that the focus indicator is going to help :-)
