But if PLM is quiet and faster, why develop a new SDM?

My truth is that we've seen progress; my truth is that I own a D FA 150-450mm - which is not an ancient screw drive lens. My truth is that the PLM is up with the fastest lens motors. My truth is that Pentax just pre-announced a lens equipped with ring-type SDM.

I believe its been stated many times PLM is good for light weight focus groups, not necessarily capable on a larger lens
