AF module? What the hell is that?

Does it speed up the slow ass AF system and fix house-sized focus points in the VF?

Somebody is hostile! You're certainly entitled to your opinion regarding the technical ability of a camera. But perhaps you could voice your concerns in a clear, logical manner without profanity or hostility?
FrancisK7, as a fellow forum member dansamy gave you some good advice. As a moderator, I am strongly suggesting that you heed that advice.

I geuss all Pentaxians have had similar considerations. And Pentax have been behind Canon and Nikon for decades when it comes to speed - fps, AF-speed and such. However, I believe the K-3 is the first camera on par with Nikan and Canon for a very long time. I find the speed, accuracy and Image Quality of the K-3 VERY GOOD, if not excellent. I have had one incident of failure - the mirror kept falpping up and down, but no images were recorded. I couldn't stop it by turning it off. If this continues to occur I'll have to switch brand. If it doesn't come back, I may stay with Pentax for the next decade or so - since I own 50 or more Pentax lenses :-). I do believe Ricoh will stick to the Pentax name - otherwise they would have changed it at once - like Sony did with Minolta.

Agreed ... and FrancisK7, if you want to be hostile/rant, please post a new thread or please go somewhere else with your profanity.

And if you have not bothered to look, this is a "For Fun" thread started by a ranting OP origin. Let's keep this thread "FF" ... OK?! J

I'm not even going to read back and see what started this... it's too close to beer time... did you guys know if you drink one beer a day, you'll live 2 years longer, but if you drink a second, you lose the 2 years. Doesn't seem fair.

Well then. Looks like I am late to the party, as usual. I hope I am not speaking out of turn or anything.

Anyway, back to your regularly scheduled programming!

No it doesn't.

How about if I save up and don't have any for 5 days, and have 6 beers on the 6th?

One drink a day, wine , cider, whatever, apparently stout or red wine is best, but all will do. But no cheating, you can't have one beer, one wine and one cider. The total has to be one. It's hard to just have one, but think about your health. I think it's harder to have one than to not have any. But not having any will lead to any early demise, so I just suffer.

Damn, I can hear you guys thinking... and not one keg.

Awesome! As much beer, wine and cider as I have consumed I am going to live practically forever.
