Yes to both, and shooting in the dark

Wait until the camera is really tested. AF can surprise us both in real life use

I hope it will surprise. I really do. I'm sick and tired of having misfocused images because of focus&recompose technique. I tend to shoot wide open all the time and I need something that can keep the focus point while recomposing. My Fuji X-T10 is extremely good at just that, but I don't like its ergonomics and I'm nowhere near in having enough lenses for it, not even a single prime.

AF points and fps..But i can live with small bursts 2-3-4 pics..And i can live with the AF points since it will be better then K-3II. But still wish it was a step closer to Nikon AF, but step by step..Pentax is getting better every time Im very happy with the newer and pentax tweaked version of the sensor. It will deliver stunning images in any type of photo.

All the jaw dropping stuff isn't something i will talk about yet. That is also nothing i will need to my type of photography, but they have really done stuff for most pentaxians..If you look at the type of photographers use it.
Hmmm. Let's analyze this for a moment. We are looking for a jaw dropping feature that is not essential to your work. What is your work?
Right, photographing old men with long hair and impressive beards up on stage. While they still move w/o wheelchairs, they are none too agile anymore - which is why you're OK with Pentax tracking auto focus and frame rates So that's not it.
You absolutely do require first rate light metering though. These old men shine like crazy and their light show is something else, too. So metering is probably not the new jaw dropper, either. If it were, you'd be first in line.
What you definitely don't need is high resolution. Those men can't hold still long enough to make that work. So while 100MP might be jaw dropping, it is already too well known. Same goes for the lenses.
Soooo, I think it must be a new hybrid viewfinder - not essential to you, as real men only use OVF's and Slash wouldn't have it any other way - but useful to others.

Please feel free to comment

It's indeed a hybrid viewfinder - with Tetris, Snake and other games. Useful when out there shooting landscapes, and waiting for the perfect light

Is that with the new 85mm f/1.2 where dof is so narrow that everything's out of focus and you won't get banned on Instagram?

Cool. I haven't seen them since '77 or '78 in Germany. And Guess who the opening act was: Scorps man.
