Have you tried spot focus (center point only) in AF-S and AF-C?

Especially when shooting non moving subjects it can be safer to use AF-S and single point AF, The predicting part of the AF-C servo may sometimes get confused when it try to track something that is not moving.

But this sounds more like a bug in the AF-C servo or lens firmware if it is repeatable this way.

Have you updated the camera to latest firmware? There have been firmware updates for AF improvements on K3 III.

I always update to the latest K3 iii firmware and have been using Rev 1.50 since a day or two after its release.

I have been shooting AF-S except for occasional experiments with AF-C.  I shoot either "spot" or "Select" with the little 5 point square inside the circle at the center of focus in the viewfinder.
