Something I would like to see Pentax do.

Hi folks,

As you know when using AF-C that an image can be taken even if the subject is out of focus. When using AF-S the first image cannot be taken unless the subject is in focus and any image taken after that (if using continuous shooting) will be out of focus since the camera does not refocus, it just fires away at the first image focus range. So, what I would like to see from Pentax is a modified AF-S mode where after the first image is taken (when using continuous shooting) the camera refocuses for the next image. This would probably slow down your frames per second (FPS) but by golly you would never again have any out of focus BIF's.

EDIT: It would be like using catch-in-focusing only you would be in autofocus mode and the motor would turn the lens instead of your hand.
