A useless K-3 setting IMO.

Hi folks,

It appears to me that in the K-3 Custom Menu, Tab 3, Item 16 (1st Frame Action in AF.C) is a useless setting. It seems to matter not what the setting is, the camera will take an image even if the subject is out of focus. Just like it always has on all previous Pentax cameras when shooting in AF-C. I would prefer that #3 of that 1st Frame Action in AF.C setting work like "Shutter can not be released until subject is in focus". Then after that first image has been taken revert to whatever action you have chosen in Custom Menu, Tab 3, Item 17.

This has long been a complaint of mine when shooting in AF-C and I even wrote a long post about it concerning the K-5 II / K-5 IIs.

Does anyone agree with me on this?
