Isn't that called DoF?
With a signature like yours, you should have gotten the joke.

Got a steam engine and monster truck coming up at the end of August. The Great Dorset Steam Fair!
I knew I shouldn't have parked there

Obviously not a true test if not using a bicycle.

There is something to that, unfortunately. Assuming you are referring to the DPReview "bicycle test" for straight on AF tracking, the bike presents a unique challenge. Not only is the frontal area fairly small, but there are multiple high contrast elements of the photo (e.g. spokes and rim) moving at different speeds or present in different planes (e.g. knees, handle bars) then the presumed target (rider's face?)

I've been hoping that someone who thoroughly knows the K-1 will attempt to duplicate the DPR AF bicycle test but haven't seen it. Has it been done and I missed it?
