On the lighter side we were discusing this over on Pentax User (UK) and Jules came up with

" It's the tracking rather thsn out and out focus speed that matters, if something travels from infinity to you in under two seconds, it'll likely kill you..."

That pretty much distills where Pentax issues are and it not AF speed but tracking ability.

P.s in the case of the 50-135 that would be 1.3 seconds to live

It's both.  While a birder may stay on a single subject and track that subject moving, a sports shooter shooting volleyball constantly switches between subjects at very different focal lengths.  So, you have two different focus behaviors.   Focus performance is very complex - that's why the moving car test is such a poor predictor of real-world behavior.
