Honestly I think that AF is Pentax's weak point.

I love my K5, limited primes and DA* zooms but AF has never been as consistent as my Oly E3 & 12-60, 50-200 (which I ended up selling as overall the Pentax is a much better system for my needs).

I think it's to do with Pentax have larger AF points as well. Just make sure you check critical shots where DOF is minimal.

I think Pentax recognises this which is why they are making a big deal of improved AF in the K30.

Not sure on this its the same 11 point Safox, Its predictive tracking Pentax are trumpeting (with expanding AF )

This wont help those large AF zones.
But will greatly aid dodgy panning and stop that Zip missed phenomenon
