    The catch in focus works with my manual focus Pentax A/M/K lens.
    I think it will work with AF lens if the lens has a switch to turn to MF.

    We were discussing about how to use manual lens, which are lens from when cameras do not have auto-focus and we have to adjust the focus with our hand, ie manual.

    If the Pentax lens is autofocus and the camera setting is AF, then the camera will focus it when the button is pressed halfway. If the setting is MF, then the camera assume you will be doing the focus yourself the manual way and ignore if out of focus.

    Hope that explains it?

    It seems that catch in focus only works for pentax lens. I have the same problem as you when i used a chinon manual lens 50mm F2.

    But when using a pentax-m 50mm, this feature works as described.
