Yesterday my wife and I went for a walk on a local urban trail. I felt like taking the K-3 and a single lens, the DA* 16-50/2.8. I had not used it for over a month. I mounted it, pressed the AF button and nothing happened, so I left the camera turned on with the lens attached an had another coffee. When I came back, it moved slowly, but it focused. I exercised the focus mechanism by focusing near and far alternately for a couple of minutes, and the old girl was like new. Worked like a charm during the walk. As snappy as it has ever been since I bought it in 2007. .
Mine behave in exactly the same way....
