You should send it for repair/replacement. It seems you've got a lemon.

I guess the difference between good and bad experience with K5 AF depends on how you use your camera and on your expectations.

In my case, my K5 was repaired twice under the warranty. It was then replaced by a new K5. I still have to recalibrate my camera for outdoor and indoor usage with my Sigma 17-70. The most problematic issue is that I need to recalibrate the camera each time I move to different room (they have different wall paint).

But I do agree, that the tungsten light issue was completely resolved by FW10.3 for rooms with white walls or when the lighting is so dark, that the BG appears as black.
