Pentax AF
May 29, 2012

Hi all!

I'm planing to buy my first Pentax DSLR in a few months, but I've come a cross some (ugly) Pentax bashing on an other forum which got me thinking.

Someone claimed that the Pentax AF system is so poor, that it has a miss-focus rate about 50-60%. Now, I know this has to be false, since no company could stay in business with cameras that are that bad, but I'm interested in where this (let's call it a myth) came from.

Could you guys share your personal (honest) opinions about the AF on the K-r and/or K-5? And maybe estimate your miss-focused pictures in %?
