Helios 44k-4 quality with AF?

I love my Helios 44K-4 - it's on the camera most of the time, but my MF-technique is not very good to say the least. Is there anything AF that matches the Helios' qualities? The DA 35 ltd is an option, but our copy is glued to my better half's K20 so I'm looking for something else.

Some ubiquitous flower shots, slightly cropped - else standard jpg out of GX-20 (sorry Pentax, I got a too-good deal on the body). I love this lense.

Try looking for a split screen focusing screen Katzeye or unbranded from China. Does wonders for MF especially coupled with that beautiful pentaprism viewfiner.
