Sad saga continues with Pentax AF
4 months ago

I love Pentax philosophy, I'm nauseous with what just happened.

Look, I don't have any illusions that Pentax AF is good.  I'm resigned to this.  I have the good lenses but  I don't expect Pentax to be able to reliably shoot sports with it but what happened today is just pathetic.

Two weeks ago, I brought my Canon T5 with the 55-250 STM "kit lens" and shot women's soccer.  It wasn't too shabby.  7out of 10 acceptable.  The Lens is very good but not spectacular IQ-wise.  I told myself, this is why soccer-mom buy this thing.

today, I shot the same team, same light level, sunny late afternoon sun.  This time, I shot with my K3 with 60-250 f4.  Setting: AF-C, focus priority, center AF, high fps.   the first 400 frames, maybe 1-10 was spot on.  2-10 decently focus.  Here's the sad part, the remaing 390 frames, all , all were blurry, nothing in the frame was in focus.  Nothing,.
