Does the K-30 focus faster than the K-5 II?

Hello. I bought a Pentax K-5 II, and I love the quality of the images. I just can't get used to the camera because the focus is slow compared to my Canon T2i and Olympus OM-D. The image quality is sooo good on the Pentax though. Has anyone used both? Is their focus system better?

The K-30 is faster in live view but generally about the same if not slightly slower for PDAF. See our in depth review for a detailed test!
