He left one out: If you happen to be shooting a K-5 in low light or want to track something, you're screwed.

cool video!
i have actually run the test where the center AF point is in my K-5 and holy is that thing huge, and nowhere where the actual indication for it is! It actually takes all of the center outlines and even a little more than that.

could someone also comment on the cleaning of the AF sensor? its something i havent even thought about until just about now. whats the best way to check for dust/specks/dirt/grease and how to properly clean it?

Thanks for spreading the word. Have come across Steve's channel before, finding it quite helpful and well presented, but wasn't aware of this particular video.
