K-50 Autofocus
2 months ago

Could anyone tell me how well the K-50 focuses in low light at large apertures in comparison to DSLRs of other makes, as well as compared to equivalent lens configurations with reasonably priced mirrorless cameras?

I have an old K-X which is woeful at focusing under these conditions.  I also have noticed various remarks here and there that focusing is still a Pentax shortcoming.  But, at the same time, I also read remarks about the K-3 being the best APS-C camera on the market.

I guess the K-50 (or K-S1) is probably not nearly as good at AF as something like the K-3 is.  But could anyone give me a better sense of just how much so?
