The other big issue to me with the current K-5 (including last fall's upgrades) is the limited AF zones -- which Nikon has increased on its new cameras, yet Pentax chose to not increase (even though Nikon already had it beat on the older cameras) on the K-5II upgrades. A maximum of 11 AF zones just doesn't get it, I don't think -- especially not when Nikon's equivalents are now past 50 zones, and were already at 39.

I agree it's time for Pentax to move on and give us more AF sensors, but the D7100 AF isn't perfection.  There's only 15 AF cross sensors in the D7100, orientated mainly central and vertically.  Seems a waste to me, horizontal would be better, and the other line sensors can easily be coaxed into not focusing from what I've heard so I wouldn't rate it that highly.
