That could be interesting.
Not for the focus issues, I think, since LED lighting was no problem even for the K-5. But as a AWB/colour balance test. Is that what you were looking to have checked?

Red and Magenta LED lighting was actually awful with the K-5.

Red and Magenta LED lighting
Huh?
I've shot dozens of gigs making use of red and magenta LED's and AF has never been a problem. Colour blooms and wacky AWB, yes, AF problems, no.

This K-5 lighting AF problem only occured to me personally, and in all the research done on this with the K-5, with red/yellow tungsten lighting. Tungsten and LED's have different wavelengths. Sometimes at gigs you might have mixed LED/tungsten, though, which complicates the analysis of the problem. Acting like giant focus assist lights, LED's on stage of any colour often gave me better AF.

Color bloom, Yuck! Don't like the way the K-30 handles blue LEDs. AWB is quite questionable in sunrise/sunset and LED light conditions.

In my experience, I'd say AWB is mostly useless in almost any light.

Never had too many issues with AWB (although the multi segment WB is excellent), but colour blooming and overloading of certain channels yes.

Really hoping my k3 outperforms my k30 in this regard

In my case AWB is spot on for the most of time. I keep As Shoot WB in Lightroom pretty often, and I usually have the in-camera WB set to AWB.

All cameras with digital sensors have trouble with LED lighting. It's just the nature of LEDs.
