There could be two possible explanations for this phenomena.

1. I, Sajeevare, Falk and a few others were unlucky to get faulty cameras that are not fixed by FW 1.13, while you and other users were lucky to get better ones. Please note, that in my case Pentax couldn't fix the AF under the warranty, the camera is fine according to them.

I got a bad K-5. It focussed accurately in daylight but showed consistent and severe front-focus in Tungsten light vs my K20D and K-x. Upgrading the firmware made no difference. I sent the camera back for a refund, because I was uncertain that it could be repaired.

My results are posted here: https://picasaweb.google.com/bonhommed/TungstenLightTest?authkey=Gv1sRgCLf74sWxotSUfA#
