My K-01 arrived yesterday and

I had in mind that I would use it mostly for macro and manual lenses but I tried the DA*16-50 on it and it is blazingly fast. I have a K-7 and the K-01 seems to focus SDM lenses faster. I'm heading out today though with the DA18-55 and a SMC 28 2.8 to see if that will work for an upcoming trip where I want to travel light.

The live view AF on the K-01 should definitely be faster than that of the K-7

Yes but I'm comparing the phase detection of the K-7 to the contrast detection of the K-01. I have the latest firmware on both I'm just surprised the K-01 is as fast as it is. It does seem better suited to small prime lenses though, ergonomically.
