But yeah. Pentax definitely needs more fast focusing lenses besides the DA 55-300mm PLM & upcoming DA* 16-50mm PLM to take advantage of the new AF algorithms & speed, if it does indeed track well.

While the PLM is very very fast, these lenses aren't the only ones that would vastly benefit from a better AF system. My D FA 150-450 for example, with its DC motor, is clearly limited by the camera (and no slouch, I'd say slightly faster than the Nikon 200-500).
