Pentax K-r auto focussing problem

I had the same problem

I had the same problem with my K-r. All pics were slightly out of focus in low light and I don't mean excessively low light, just available natural light in the middle of the day indoors. Pics were in perfect focus when using live view or manual focus. I got rid of the K-r and replaced it with a used K-x with shutter count of only 800. The K-x image quality has been far superior to those of the K-r.

I tried getting the problem fixed at Pentax Repair but they said it was within factory specs and that I needed to send in ALL my lenses to calibrate them with the camera. That's insane. I don't have to do that with my K-5 or K2000 and now my K-x nor with any previous Pentax DSLRs I've owned. Why should I have to do this with the K-r?
