K-r AF speed......any comment please?

I'm currently shooting K-7 and also owned K20d, never really happy with AF speed on these bodies. With the new K-r and K-5, I'm sure Pentax has addressed the issue and made improvements. But I'd like to know is improvement on AF speed significant enoungh justifying getting an K-r for pure purpose of AF speed (and maybe high ISO performance)?

Thank you in advance for your comments and opinions.

I can assure the K-r has faster AF system than the K-7 since I have both.

The K-r lock focus much faster and spin focusing ring faster too. SDM lenses might not show much improvement because of SDM limitation, but with screw-driven lens, it is completely noticeable.

How about tracking AF.C and continuous drive?
