Pentax K-3 - Here is how it works.

Hi folks,

The best explanation of the features of the K-3 can be found at:

Page 2 gives a very good explanation of the AF system. For example:

Auto tracking**

to trace the subject’s movement in tandem with the new scene analysis system

The PENTAX Real-time Scene Analysis System accurately detects the color, shape and movement of a subject, and keeps monitoring it throughout the imaging process. With the help of this innovative system, the K-3 automatically shifts the AF point to trace the subject’s movement with great speed and precision. Thanks to a wide AF area covered by 27 AF points, it maintains the sharp focus on the subject, even when it’s moving at high speed or when you are using the high-speed continuous shooting mode.

** This function is available when the camera’s AF mode is set to AF.C (continuous) or AF.A (auto).

The following is the part that interests me the most:

Even when the subject moves away from the in-focus point or the K-3 loses the sight of the subject because of some obstacle, the K-3 retains the in-focus status. Depending on the photographic conditions or your preference, you can choose one of three holding durations.

The link I provided above is well worth reading.

If all of this works like it is written at the link I provided, then I can say that I am one heluva happy camper.
