Are You Familiar With This One?

This is at Dpr by BravoBrown:

"Wondered if you ever tried the custom feature of turning off the AF correction so it hunts less after first focus acquisition... just for added AF speed. I don't see much posted about that, but seems like it might help in some situations." source:
Going back to Canon [Page 4]: Pentax SLR Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review

He also adds later:
Hi Larry,

I really wish I bookmarked that because it sounded very promising. I read it either here or at pentaxforums... but haven't had the time to thoroughly search and find the thread. I'm away for the weekend, but I will definitely get back to you, as it's something very interesting to me as well. Apologies.
Best regards,

I'm more than a little curious about this one... anyone know about this/what he is talking about?

Well, found this on the net -

I didn't verify this as I don't have my cam around so not sure if the AF can be changed to the way you mentioned.

Do at your own risk (!) but by all means, let us know the outcome...

The "service" menu disappeared in the subsequent firmwares.

Auto focus adjust

I have used this debug menu on my DS to try (unsuccessfully) to correct ff/bf. But this does not stop the af "hunting" for focus....which i have never found to be an issue anyway.
