If you have the money and want the fastest and most accurate AF get the Canon 1DX or Nikon D4s and pair them with their top line lenses in a focal length that suites your needs.

Compared to my old K10D the new K3 is very very nice, but it is no match for those Nikon and Canon beasts.
Yeah, to get the basic kit for what I shoot most often I was looking at $12K to $18K to switch brands.
If I'm paying a good portion of the store clerk's salary, I'm going to have to really like what I'm getting.

So, yeah, AF NOT in Live View does seem improved over the K-5.
Canon nailed that with the 70d. Hopefully others come up with something similar. Especially nice for video. It doesn't go past focus and then come back like the contrast detect does and it's miles ahead of any typical dslr.

I don't use if for video much, but like if for stills when I want live view.
