K5 Autofocus Bug?
Oct 15, 2011

I finally gave in and bought the wonderful K5! I haven't had any chances to take any photos other than some test ones. While testing it out I noticed that the camera confirmed a photo as in-focus when it was completely blurry. It did this in the scene below. The issue only occurs when it is in the auto setting for focus (not center or point) and I can repeat the issue easily. Oh, the other thing is I am using the 18-55 kit lens and it only occurs around the 55 'area'.

Has anyone had similar issues? Would you recommend sending it in to Pentax?

Both of these images were given a focus lock confirmation from the camera.
