This is the second review I've noticed that mentioned slow Live View AF when the PF review and some hands on reviews by users here seem to feel the Live View AF is very fast. I also tried it in store and found it quite fast. Maybe it's just fast among Pentax cameras. Are other brands' live view focusing so much faster than the K-30?

One of the reviewers that mentioned slow CDAF said he was comparing to the current gen mirrorless cams.

Seems stupid to me, but whatever.

Yes, I think the Contrast Dectect auto focus on SLR cameras in general is slower than on mirrorless cameras, like the Olympus OM-D, or even the Sony NEX cameras.
