Need to ask you Pentaxians a favor
Jan 27, 2010

My wife has a K-x and i own a Sony A550. We're both fairly happy with our choices and both love our cams, even exchange them in certain situations, so this isn't about Sony vs. Pentax or anything similar.

However, we're about to step up soon. The question i have is the following:

My A550's autofocus is (in conditions that are less than super bright) faster than the Pentax AF. The dimmer it gets, the more the A550 autofocus is superior to the one on the K-x. Now i would rather not go with a camera with even worse autofocus performance than the K-x.....

So basically, is the autofocus speed IN DIM LIGHT (indoors, not many light sources) on the K-7 slower,faster or the same as the K-x???

Thanks for your honest answers. And R.M., don't give me your typical Pentax marketing babble please.
