K-01 AF Performance Firmware V1.00 Vs V1.01

By What Blog is This?

Via 1001 Noisy Cameras.

Assuming the battery power levels were the same, the new firmware does significant improve the AF speed of the K-01. However, the CDAF still need to turn the lens to-and-fro so as to search for the focus but did never know which direction to turn first at the beginning. I believe that if Pentax will be able to get the new Sony sensor with PMAF sensor built-in, e.g., like the one used in the NEX-5R, this search should not be even required in most cases and hence the AF performance could be twice faster! (But provided that if Pentax can get any new sensor! >:-()
