AFC on the K3

I recently purchased a used K3. My older camera is a K7.
I can't figure out how to switch from AFS to AFC. With the K7 I just flipped the switch on the camera body. K3 only gives me thee option of AF or MF. Thanks so much.

Hold down the AF mode button and use the front e-dial.

You can also set up the user modes to have different auto focus settings, which is neat!

Failing that press the info button on the back and you will see your AF modes

+1 to what calsan said.

I have U1 set to spot focus and AF-S with U2 set to Auto-9 focus and AF-C. The U1 settings are my preferred config but if I need to take a photo of, say birds in flight, I can change to U2 virtually immediately.
