Yes, the K-3 would be better for continuous AF. Of the ones you mention the K-5ii and, I believe, K-50 are better than the original K-5, but still not as good as the K-3.

Compared to the D7000?I wouldn't know, have never used one, sorry.
Thanks for your response. I assumed that the K3 would be the best regarding continuous autofocus and low light focusing too. But it is out of my budget at the moment.

I am tired of having to tell the kids “hold on, don’t move” while I try to lock focus. It takes away from the spontaneity. It would be great to be able to just shoot away. And I was wondering if the D7000 would allow me to do that. And I’m not even talking about the kids running around. Just moving back and forth.

I know you’ve never used one, but I’m sure someone here has had experience with a D7000 with the situation I’ve described.
