There is a setting on whether a remote auto focuses or not. I would think you would use af-c.

What a great tool k5 is!

I been through a lot looking for ways to do self portraiture more efficiently, and thinking of investing in gh3 due to its wifi and flip screen function. And then I found out the beauty of interval shooting function of k5. I just need to set the interval and number of shots, af-s (not af-c surprisingly)will do auto focus before firing away. If it is not in focus the camera will not fire and counted as an attempt. What a camera!
