My AF seems fine!

Today was my birthday and my kids got me an AirHog (so they could use it!). I went to the park with my K-5 and Tamron 70-200 2.8. I used S and C mode on the camera as well as continuous low instead of high. I was pretty happy with the results as the AirHog is one of the most erratic things I have ever tried to track!

Yeah, especially after selling all of my Nikon gear to switch back to Pentax!

Your K-5 must be broken. Send it back to Pentax.
Clearly that sort of AF accuracy shouldn't be happening.

Well, perhaps I can send it to you and you can test it out!

It was quite a bit of fun, just had to watch out so that I did not get whacked by the thing! Thanks.
