You might not be able to touch up the focus manually without quick shift, but you should still be able to temporarily disable AF.

Yes of course, an oof picture might be better than no picture.
But hopefully AF is improved enough that MF is not needed on these cameras.

Until mind-reading hardware is invented, MF is always a necessary fallback in some cases.

...and this is usually what I revert back to!

I've had the same annoying hunting by AF, and in those circumstances I'll switch to MF with the button on the side of the camera body. Often when focusing on a complex subject, such as a flock of birds feeding on the ground, I'll find a focus point I like with AF, and then flip to MF to wait for just the picture I want as the birds move around. Other times I'll pre-focus with AF on a place waiting for a bird to show (like at a bird feeder), then I'll flip to MF and wait for the shot I seek.

There will never be a one-size-fits-all camera body. Personal priorities & subjects being shot create unlimited variations. Plodding AF aside, the positives of the K200d have made it my tool of choice (especially the build quality & handling characteristics) to the point where I now have two of them.

Power to you, small qualms aside... the K200D is keeper.

There is also AF-s rather than AF-c. It has to be changed in the menu.
