AF while shooting action gripes? I don't understand....
Jun 26, 2014

I rarely shoot action (sports etc) but shot a work football game today and the K-3 performed flawlessly. Used the 18-135 and DA 55-300 in decent sunlight with AFS and AFC and it was solid. And the buffer is pretty great. Just doing a cursory review on the LCD, zooming in etc, and it looks like it nailed focus most if not all of the time. And it was FAST. Up to my face and focus locked faster than the action even required.

Not sure why I've seen so many threads with people claiming that Pentax is not a good camera for "sports."
