I'm not talking about $10k of equipment, but maybe D500 ($2000) and 200-500 ($1400). Beside, I only posted because you made the assertion that the user is at fault when they miss focus. I just want to present another view that some equipment may facilitate capturing moving subjects better.

This is the kind of BIF that I don't see much in the Pentax forum:
Nikon D500 BIF Shots: Nikon Pro DX SLR (D500, D300, D200, D100) Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review
Not just tracking parallel to flight but directly towards you. All that with a consumer lenses.
As for your example, the D800 is actually quite a few notch down from Nikon's top performer in terms of autofocus. Off the top of my head, D5/500, D4/D4s, D810, D750 all bests it.

I keep the XT1 for a totally different type of shooting. Definitely not for it's autofocus.

Because it's also about hit rate and predictably. I currently have a D800e, xT1, and k30 and sold the k3 because the autofocus just isn't as confident. Go compare bird photos in the various forums and see the percentage of BIF vs static bird photos. Maybe that'll give you an idea of the autofocus performance of each system. :)

Neither could I. Only one person claimed to have done it, but no actual prove. I was obviously skeptical.

For those considering this deal, also consider that B&H extended their return window to Feb 1 2015 for purchases made between Nov 1 and Jan 1:
Return & Exchange Policy | B&H Photo Video
Now that's pretty good customer service.

Looks like B&H just updated their site to reflect the coupon: Pentax K-3 DSLR Camera Body 15530 B&H Photo Video

Now you can get the body, grip, and flash for $846.95 w/ expedited shipping.
I was debated to get either the K-3 or the XT-1 and with this, the decision just made a lot easier. :)

Hi Fred,

Since you have both xt1 and k3, how do you rate their auto focus? I currently have xe1 and k30 and would like better AF. I would like to upgrade one of them. Which camera do you think would track better? Thank you.

Thanks Adam for your reply. My lenses are in my signature. I was actually reading your review of the K3 and I have a question about you autofocus test vs the Nikon D600. At what focal length was the test done under DA for the 60-250 and Nikon 70-200/2.8? TIA.

K-3 vs K-30 Autofocus

I have been using my K-30 for a year and have been happy with images I am getting from it. With the recent price drop of the K-3, I am considering an upgrade. My most concerned feature is the auto focus. I shoot mostly my 4 and 6 year olds running around at the park during the day time and I find the auto focus of the K-30 to be lacking at times. To those who had experience with both K-3 and K-30, will I gain much in auto focus by upgrading my K-30 to K-3 for my use?

You know your lens is not sharp when there is a seemless transition between the subject to the bokeh.
