How much better is the AF tracking on the K-3 II?

The K-3/K-3 II AF-C is complex and has a million options. It takes some practice to get results.

As audiobomber suggests, each type of subject - eg motor vehicle rally vs football game vs birding vs wedding reception - may require a different set of settings - for AF hold, for AF area etc.

This shouldn't be a surprise. You see this in the settings for other cameras - eg the Canon 7D2 has six different presets (or 'usage cases') in the menu for continuous AF that vary the settings for AF area and AF hold:


One could achieve something similar with the K-3/II by setting up a few UI/U2/U3 'User modes' for different action shooting scenarios.

Just got my K-3 II. I did a quick test of the AF (AF.C 9-point expanded area) with cars moving towards me at around 25 mph on my DA* 60-250mm and it performs pretty well. Some shots were slightly out of focus but none were particularly soft, and the camera was able to maintain a consistent frame rate of about 4-5 fps. This was under suboptimal lighting conditions as it was around 7:00 PM when I took the shots. Given my experience with the K-5, it's likely that the older camera would have had trouble getting this frame rate with a good number of usable shots in the same situation.

Edit: Hold AF Status was set to Medium. This may have degraded the tracking performance in this situation. I'll see if I can do a similar test with Hold AF Status off. I have yet to fully understand the new AF system's settings, so I may not have fully utilized it.

Yes, keeping up with a three year old is a serious test. Not just of the camera :-)
