fa77/1.8 AF is much faster on k100d!

Yes. Fa77/1.8 is made of metals. Lots of metals. It kills camera battery really fast while getting moving subjects with a speed is almost a challenge. Well that is the story with DS body.

Fa77/1.8 on k100d works well. A lot faster for focusing. Easier for me to do candid shots in the street without people knowing.

Now I can dream how much faster for k10d with this lens on, snap snap snap

I left my mobile at mum's. And it rang like hell with horrible gale. So I sort of did nothing really.

Maybe wait til the batch arrival of k10d along with other DA lenses hopefully?

Hi guys

Just a quick question: how much faster is the AF on K100D compared to DS? Is it noticeably faster? I have been thinking about getting K10D but it is more than what I really need so I am thinking I might be getting K100D instead. I will probably wait until K10D to make my final decision but I am interested to know about the AF speed on K100D.
