I'm sure it'll still be slow and smooth as it always has been, just more accurate thanks to the PDAF.



I'd say that yes, it would be a nice upgrade. The AF will also be faster as the K-70 has the more sensitive SAFOX X from the K-5 II. However, if you want a really big burst buffer then the K-3 or K-3 II would be the way to go.

The K-70's buffer is 40 JPEG/8 RAW based on the specs, whereas the K-3 can do at least 50/24, and that's at 8.3 FPS. At 5 FPS it will get you even more.

Correction to what I previously wrote:

it appears that video AF.C is possible with the 55-300mm PLM and with the DA 18-135mm that is available in a kit :)

AF.C only. You get AF.S with any lens.

Perhaps, but maybe not- it also boasts an improvement in image quality over all previous non-flagship bodies, and it has more features.





It does not, continuous video AF requires PLM. My guess would be that we'll see a PLM version of the 18-50mm in due time. Until then, there's the new 55-300mm.

Since the K-70 has hybrid AF, though, on-demand AF-S in video should work much better than it did before, though.



Well, this is a consumer-oriented camera (entry-level, or whatever you want to call it). For hardcore users I'm sure we'll see an updated version of the K-3 with these improvements and more. That's certainly been the trend recently, at least.

Putting 14-bit RAW into even the lowest model is a good move. It's clear that the entry-level DSLR is being redefined.
