Re: Told ya a week ago

You mean 2 days ago

Yes, it is having trouble - I can live with it - and no I dont need nor want to change to a D80 - I like the K10 very much and even if the D80 is better in such conditions (which I dont know if it is and I have come to not rely on anyones word but test it for myself so I dont feel I will get adequate answers asking in the Nikon forum) the only option would be to take a D80 home and see how it does and I am not going to do that. The K10 is great for me except for this issue - I will however get over it and learn to deal with it - I am going to call Pentax anyways and see what they have to say about their not overly impressive AF system in low-light and tell them about my experience of how its fine in the day but not indoors in low incandescent lighting. I imagine they will probably say - its normal behaviour and that I cant expect the same level of accuracy as I get during the day.

Under that lighting it appears Pentax has a clear weakness that to
me, is very hard to argue with.

I'd ask for a recalibration and if that does nothing then return it
and go a D80 if youy can afford the price of Nikon glass and the
extra size and weight.
