Evidently sense of humor lost out as well

I didn't realize that "old sayings" had to undergo ISO 9001 certification to retain usefulness...

Yes, it must have since my comment wasn't a challenge or request to undergo anything. I simple made a passing remark about the phrase not being heard in a long time and why.

Looks like we're going through the usual "Holy War" with regard to Pentax AF, again. :-)

My 2-cents worth.

Is Pentax AF speed (especially low-light AF speed) slower than its competitors ? Yes.
Is Pentax AF speed functional enough for most photography situations ? Yes.
Do I wish the Pentax AF speed was faster ? Yes.
Is the overall Pentax package great value for what I spent ? - Absolutely Yes.

If you do a lot of sports photography or low-light events, or do contractual photography work, you would be advised to check out Nikon or Canon.

For general users, Pentax is a very acceptable camera.

We are not discussing cameras, neither we are discussing skills... we are talking about AF... again - not
the camera as whole package... just AF.

Hum, when I learned how to make photos with my Ricoh Singlex TLS, 33 years ago, most photos I shot were in focus and right exposed. Today I have less focus problems than exposure problems. The focus system works pretty reliable and good, except for very low light situations.

I can remember the days that cameras like the K10D were called PHD cameras; [P]ush [H]ere [D]ummy! cameras.

Guess most people have forgotten to anticipate on a situation, are too lazy to work with the camera and blame the system if their exposure or focus are wrong.
To them: If you want a PHD! camera buy a P&S camera.

Don't blame the tool, blame yourself.

That's quite an absurd analogy...
