This is an extremely old AF.
Been there for a few YEARS now I believe.

I for one an very happy that it does NOT appear to have a tilt/swivel LCD. Save those for camcorders without viewfinders, and "megazoom" P&S cameras.

My K-7 wish list: (in order)

-Faster AF comparable to the class-leaders
-Improvements to high ISO (to an already excellent k20d)
-More FPS (6 would be consistent with the class-leaders)

Mainly I am just posting to be a part of history in the "Megathread"

The tilt/swivel LCD is maybe not necessary for the general use, but it is EXTREMELY useful for "above-the-crowd" pictures, and "weird-angels" MACROs, where the viewfinder is simply not accessible.

I'm not saying it is a must, but it's definitely a very useful feature.

Ditto to the above , and for candid shots , too.

Hope they didn't leave off a place for a cable shutter release thing like they did on the Km

1) AF that can be adjusted separately for daylight/tungsten light.

and

2) AF that can have at least (in some kind/shape/form) different adjustments for zoom lenses (wide end - tele end).

w/ that I can even live (for a while...) w/ a slow AF (what is the point to have it fast and wrong)

and

3) AF adjustment system to be automated - I mean if you have CDAF then use it, damn it, to find necessary adjustments for PDAF in a more automated way, finally ! point to a target, use CDAF and PDAF to focus separately and record the difference between CDAF and PDAF... sounds like a pure software task

I've never noticed the lighting source affecting AF, other than speed which would be more a matter of the amount of light, but I assume you're talking about adjusting BF/FF issues? How does the light change that?

for example my FA50/1.4 has different adjustments between a daylight and classic tungsten light, rather it does not need any adjusment in one case and need it (-5, K20D) in another case...

This seems odd to me (not doubting you, just confused). Any idea why this happens, or is the explanation going to require a few more physics classes?

I wonder what made Pentax concentrate on size with the K-7. of course it's a great, unique selling point but it's also probably the last thing on the priority list for current Pentax users...let's hope they at least get some more new users.

If that's photoshopped, somebody did a mighty fine job.
