AF low light performance

Again, sorry it got so delayed, but I thought you;d like to know that we've just published our full review of the Pentax K-3.

As expected, trying to test AF and the AA Filter Simulation mode took a lot of work, but I'm hoping there's something you find useful in there.

Thanks for the thorough and informative review. Still - I am wondering why dpr does not mention the K3's AF capability in low light. For every in-door available light photographer this is as cruicial as low noise at high ISO. When reviewing the K5 II that feature was mentioned and favorably compared to the Nikon D7100 - and is one of the K5 ii's major selling points. Actually in the K3 review the whole "performance" section is missing - the part where AF performance would be located. Anyway, I hope the K5 ii low light capabilities are a base feature in all Pentax bodies now.
