Good report I would say. The K-01 is a very capable camera with limitations compared to our dslr's.

For contrast AF there is a need for plenty of light and good expensive fast lenses offer more of that then cheap kit-zoom-lenses.

On the faster lens issue I would agree. But as for needing plenty of light?

At iso 200 I've got well below one second exposure at 5.6 (also using a variety of the expensive lens' though). At that metered setting and with incredibly low contrast on subjects; I've had no issues with focusing.

Now if it happens to be a black train generally speeding towards me in near darkness then it may have a bit of difficulty focusing

Well my DA*55mm delivers with f1.4 4 EV more light to the sensor and thus working for AF then the kitlens does at 55mm and f5.6! So it isn't the available light in the room, but the amount of light reaching the sensor that makes the difference.
