But isn't this a first for Pentax?

Nope: see the k-70.

Right. See detail text from K-70 body listing on Amazon: " Image plane phase-matching elements are embedded on the [chip] surface which allows Hybrid AF in Live View mode."

Like the OP, however, I still see this as encouraging--an indication that Pentax already has in-house the chip, supply, support circuitry, and software to produce an APS-C MILC with PDAF. An L-mount alliance announcement would indeed be interesting.
