Re: GR III user report

Snap focus is great. I use it 90% of the time. But the fact that it is great, and very useful, doesn't excuse the pitiful AF on the GR III.

1-100. The autofocus. OMG. (ver 1.30 btw). What a suckfest. Ok it works fine in bright sunlight. But anything less so and fugghedaboudit. It's ridiculous. I mean you line everybody up in the bar/restaurant to take a group shot and the lens hunts in and out and gives up and your cousin cracks on you like 'dude i thought you were some kind of great photographer! My iphone is better than that!'.

And don't even think about evening night street photography: Girl i'm trying to do a quick sneaky snap on ...'uh do you want me to stand still for you so you can get your shot?' what a total freaking embarrassment. This is a 2018 product, pentax, and you're charging $800 for this mess!!! ( i got mine used for $660). Absolutely shameful.

So, if you used snap focus, it would be a great camera?

I.e. if your subject happens to be at a predetermined distance.

"Hey guys, make sure you stay at 1.5 meters so you can be in focus...thanks!"

If you knew a bit about lenses and focusing, you would know how good snap focus is, and how wrong is your comment.

Sorry but at f2.8 he's correct
