It looks to me like a good product with a defined target market and every chance of being a mass selling camera.

Does anyone know if it has AF in video ?

Hi Andrew,

Apparently, yes on the video AF. That's according to Josh Root over at photo.net who has done the most extensive and balanced preview yet, accompanied by thoughtful posts from others (myself excluded). Josh also indicated that the focus peaking is a Ricoh implementation - and is the best around. Who would have guessed?

Yes he has assurances from Pentax that it will.

If my photography business picks up, and I start getting demand for video (and that's the way of the world these days), I'll be looking seriously at the camera. It isn't my desire to shoot video, but this camera is way ahead of the K-5 on that count.
