My K3 is in service for backfocus issues. Kinda disappointed mine had this issue. I'm keen to see if the service department will blame it on the lens, the body, or me.

I spoke to a tech recently and he somewhat indicated that I wasn't testing my focus properly. We'll hello! If I focus on something (like batteries lined up at 45 degree angle) and get a focus indicator on the middle, if I take a shot (even with a tripod and on timer) why is it back focusing?

You are probably doing it correctly.

Please understand though that the focus area is much larger than the red focus indicator. So, check that it is not actually locking focus at the battery beside it.

Hi Roland,
Yes the batteries are apart enough so the focus point doesn't accidentally pick up the wrong battery. Plus I have a white background to eliminate accidentally confusing the camera.
