Even if you're right (which I'm not so sure... you see, Sony killed the SLR lines immediately and Pentax didn't try until now, so who was to get an SLR AF close to Canon/Nikon in performance?) there's another thing to keep in mind: autofocus is not always the most important feature in a camera.

With everyone going MILC, there's a need for one SLR brand - regardless if they have top notch AF or not.


Agree completely on AF not being the most important. Perfectly valid to say a mirror and optical viewfinder and K-mount is more important than dramatic improvement in AF.

And yet, for someone trying to choose between Pentax and another camera system, AF may indeed be the single most important difference.
