But isn't this a first for Pentax?

Nope: see the k-70.

I stand corrected!

I'm going to have to read up more about the Pentax 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.

I think it is very exciting to hear about more and more about on-sensor PDAF!

It has me looking at the Ricoh GR III !!!

Take care & Happy Shooting!

An L-mount alliance announcement would indeed be interesting.
