Is K3 Auto focus really that bad?

Let me start by saying that the K3 is the best all round APS-C body I have ever had the pleasure of owning. The image quality from it is just superb.

Before moving to Pentax (via m4/3) I used Canon, shooting on both their APS-C and 1 series bodies. I shot motorsports semi-professionally for local and national publications in the UK, so I have a lot of experience of using AF-C.

In my experience the K3 (using SDM, screw drive and HSM drive lenses) comes a poor second with respect to AF-C to other brands. It can do it, but not nearly as well as the Canon equipment I used to use. Any motorsport I shoot now, I tend to pre-focus the old fashioned way because I simply do not trust the AF system to get the shot. It also struggles to keep up with my (very active) 3 year old son, particularly if he is running straight towards the camera. My advice would be that if shooting moving things is a high priority for you, then you may be better looking at Canon or Nikon because their body and lens combinations will out perform the K3.

So far I've stuck with Pentax because in the main I can work around the AF-C limitations, and in all other aspects it performs significantly better than the current competition as an all round camera.

Just to update where I'm at. After a LOT of thinking, I've decided to 'go for broke' and take a long term view. My new K3 should arrive this week :-). I'm very excited about the prospect of getting my hands on Pentax's flagship DSLR!

Thank you to everyone that posted on this thread. I appreciate the welcome you've given me, and the information was extremely useful in helping me decide which way to go.

Cheers,

Simon.
