K-S2 Firmware 1.20 AF continuous

Just loaded, AF.S same as before. Then using my Tamron 70-300mm, I thought the AF.C seemed more twitchy. That is reseeking lock a lot more times than I felt necessary. Could be my imagination, anybody of the same opinion or disagree?

Probably your imagination, since this update didn't touch the AF. Slightly different shoptong conditions than you're used to, perhaps?

No changes in terms of AF sighted with mine, but I only have tammy 70-200/2.8. Works as before Maybe its subjective-but enhanced clarity processing and auto hdr seems bit faster.

From a K-S1 user with v1.20 and a Tamron 70-300mm, I find AF.C just as crap as before.
