Whether the AF was faster or not, I did notice that it at least tried harder to maintain focus in AF.C. We had two consecutive days this week with school groups coming to the farm and the same weather (bright and sunny). With the first group, I was disappointed with the AF.C on the 50-135 (which is known to be quite sluggish). When the students were obviously moving out of the plane of focus, the K-3 + 50-135 just sat there. I had to switch to AF.S and put the quick shift function to use (a very nice feature IMO).

The next day, I received the email from PF that 1.21 was released and updated before going into work. The camera seemed like it had been given a shot of caffeine. The red focus indicator light was constantly updating focus and you could hear the lens' SDM motor whirring. It was quite quick with the 20-40 limited as well.

Today I'll sit down to see how accurate the focus was, but this update from 1.11 sure does change the AF. Without a doubt, the camera simply tries harder.

Edit- Even in AF.S the camera, with both the 20-40 and 50-135, focuses noticeably quicker.

I see you're having a lot of fun with your new lens. I'd recommend purchasing a Gimbal Head for your tripod (even the cheap $75-120 ones provided it supports 25+ lbs) It will help you get the best out of your setup.

Thank Dave. When shooting that close the area of prime focus is very shallow hence his head is a bit unsharp but I have the whole Summer to get it right.:D--charliezap
