K-5: does autofocus work with video?

I never understood why anybody is putting up with the limitations and workarounds of a DSLR for video if the objective is over and beyond shooting a casual video clip. Video cameras are available plentiful at reasonable prices and do a much better job. They don't overheat, they do autofocus, they allow manual exposure control, and they handle more conveniently for video than a DSLR. And HD video requires just about 2 MP. What am I missing?

An entire industry has sprung up offering gadgets helping you to overcome the deficiencies of a DSLR as a video camera. This is one of my favorites LOL:

This doesn't look like photoshop magic to me:

Rather, it is a nice looking lens, compact for its range!

The specifications mention nothing about restrictions:

DA lenses which will generally not cover the full 24 x 36 mm frame results in dark corners on the film and shouldn't be used.

These is only one MF (Manual Focus) switch (left side of the lens mount when viewed from the top) - refer the pictures in the above link.

On the right hand side is a switch for setting whether to use single point autofocus or multiple point autofocus.

On the back there is a ML (Memory Lock aka exposule lock) switch.

Interesting! A close call. The 105mm is supposedly legendary but in your example the 100mm appears to have a slight edge in contrast!
