Is that little joystick-selection box thing common in LV?

It's like operating a spy satellite!

Yes, it is. The K-7 does have it too, but not nearly as fast and no satellite spy-zoom either (it does have a manual zoom however).

Does the K-5 have AF in video so we can actually make use of this? Apart from video I never used LV AF in the K-7. It wasn't because it was slow, it was just LV had no other use beyond video.

From the information we know, AF is not available in video

And I think it's a shame, if Contrast AF is so fast with the K5 - then at least we could have an option, burried deep in menu, better than none. Even if it's slow, noisy compared to a video camera - I would very much want an AF while filming.

From what I remember, K7 had AF in video in the pre-producation, but they removed it in the final version because they said it was to slow.

WOW. Impressive.

If put this in video and had manual video control and 24p then they would've taken over a niche market.

Right, it's definitely an f/2.8 lens. But the AF noise leads me to believe this is not an SDM lens.
I suspect a prime, not a zoom. The zooming on the LCD is just focus assist, methinks.

My guess is the DA40

It looks cool. And that CDAF is as fast as some of the PDAF in older cameras. I'm wondering if the zoom is necessary for the actual focusing (though I doubt - it doesn't need to be shown on the LCD for that - it's probably just one mode for peace-of-mind, to show the user that everything's in focus.)

As people have said, it's gone from a nice-to-have feature to something that's much, much more usable. Of course, we've all got to realise that video was on some well-lit, high-contrast subjects on a white background, but still...it's blisteringly fast.

I really wish Pentax would do things like release the story behind some of their developments - who were the engineers, what their process was, etc., for the CDAF and the new SAFOX IX+.

just how many SDM lenses had to die to record that video?

VERY nice performance though...
