I agree. Canon USM is fast and reliable. This is one area that Pentax could focus R&D money in and effectively improve their whole line of current lenses. Autofocus system is another. That is why I think making more prime lenses should be the least of their priority, since they already excel in that department.

We got a new EF300/4 L IS USM at home. I hope it will prove itself reliable, but it is not faster than some lenses I use with the K-5. I just need to find someone nearby with DA*300 to compare it with the peer.
