K5II with 17-70 lens feedback

Hi looking for a wide angle zoom for the K5II, min 17mm. Have read that the 17-70 can be very good,but has focus problems,and I wonder if it works better on the new K5II with its improved AF. So does anyone have feedback on this
Thanks again

In low light, it'll be a bit faster and hunt less, but in general it should feel about the same because it's an F4 lens.
