However, when comparing the D700 with AFS 70-200/2.8 VR2 to the K-5 with the equivalent DA*50-135/2.8, you basically compare one of the fastest focusing lenses from Nikon with one of the slowest Pentax lens. It is really like day and night.

Indeed; for a real progress Pentax should seriously work on the lenses. The 18-135 looks promising, a step in the right direction.
A video comparing AF speed between the 18-135, 50-135 and the FA 50mm f/1.4:
