How big is the AF point?

I see what youre saying - that was exactly what was happening when my battery was low - I couldnt even tell what the hell it was trying to focus on.

Im actually curios as to the size of the AF point. How big is it? Is it exactly the size of the red box that lights up - is exactly there - or is it a little bigger than that?

I may not have explained it as clearly as I could have.. When the
lens focuses, it focuses just fine. In fact, they all do. I've not
noticed any front or back focus issues with any of them. Either
they are dead on, or I can't figure out what spec of dust in the
air they chose to focus on. Because when the autofocus photos are
out of focus, they are WAAAAAY out of focus. Not just a little bit
but focused at infinity on a closup subject. It seems to happen
more with the FA50 than the rest. It may be because that's the one
I paid the most for. This is only in certain conditions however,
dark indoor room, as stated previously. I haven't had a lot of
chance to try it outside. With respect to the exposure, I actually
prefer a little underexposure. Coming into DSLR from B&W film,
expose for shadows, process for highlights.

I will freely admit that I'm still learning how to use this new
medium (to me) called DSLR and many of my problems could be user
error. In my mind, I'm sometimes the first to accuse (though I
rarely put it into writing) someone of blaming the equipment rather
than the operator when problems pop up with our beloved Pentax
gear. No, I don't think there's anything wrong with my copy, I'm
probably expecting too much from it. Quickly Autofocus on my black
lab in a dark room for instance. Like I said, Some situations......
Still happy with the K10d (in spite of the pixel peepers)
