I'm sorry you feel that way, especially in light of you saying in an earlier post that his measurements are "meaningless".
A couple of things, one being that many times I've found his results to be completely flawed in relation to what I know about the equipment in use, and that if he is putting his results out there as an expert witness, his test methods need to be transparent, flawless and above reproach, all of which you yourself say they are not.

I have the answers:

#1. It's a hobby, for some to test and for others to discuss the test. I'm not being snarky; some people just really like the investigation.

#2. It's a way to kill time owing to inclement weather/time of day/disinterest of subject.

#3. It doesn't remind me how bad my photos really are.

#4. It might give me an excuse for how bad my photos really are.

Wait for it ...

#5. It can drive reputation points up, points that can be used for free airfare anywhere in the world!

I disagree. The K10 struggles significantly with continuous auto focus on people moving towards the camera, although it does OK if you are shooting from the side. If you put the camera on AF-C it will take lots of blurry photos or else not keep up at all. The K7 might be able to come close to these photos, but in my experience there is less sharpness.

Thanks so much for this test. Just one more reason to start saving!

Kinda hard now with 50-135 f2.8 and 60-250 f4 still in production.

if Pentax redo the *80-200 then it will definitely eat into the sale of 60-250 f4...

Shame Pentax doesn't make a 70-200/f2.8 to match this.

Yea, AF-c is not why i am buying the k-5. That is a small part of the package. Would be nice to have at one point though. Without buying new glass.

More useful tests. All those seem to be in focus.

There should be an option in the K-5 to link the exposure and the AF point in the focusing area (if you are using a Pentax lens and multi-segment AE) so that camera exposure is set according to the AF point.

That feature is available on the K-x. (Menu > Custom 1 > 6: Link AE to AF point). That might help to meter objects like the seagull better.

Whooh, I just got run over by those girls! This is the best example yet I have seen of the K5 Autofocus. Very pleased with the result. Thanks Telfish for doing this.

Don't worry about the exposure, it's the focus we are concerned about here. And it is quite remarkable. Thanks for the tests.

AF was the test. I don't care that they are dark. Thanks for the effort you've put into getting these up for us!

Also good news that you can link the AE to AF points! Sounds like a great tool!

Telfish - thanks for your efforts testing the AF on the new K5 - much appreciated.

It's too bad that some folks have to bi*** about something totally irrelevant to your stated intention (see the 1st post): "Went out today with the intent to test again the AFC of the K5."

Thanks again!!!

Thanks, but what is a rep (besides the obvious; short for reputation) and how does it go up? sorry I'm a noob.
