Remember that thomass said "it's not possible"? It is. You're still debating around this fact.
No, you are. I'm trying to tell you that, no matter what the manufacturers claim, even with a 300k sensor it will not be usable in real life. And that's not an assumption, it's my opinion based on more than 10 years of experience with Nikon 3D tracking.

Feel free to insist that you believe it is possible, because some marketing department tells you so (Pentax and/or Nikon). Allow me to still disagree based on the experiences I made with the available systems. I am pretty sure that is what Thomas intended to say: with the current technology, it's not possible to do in a way that is actually working and/or useful.That's reality denial. The feature is implemented and working.
And thomass didn't say that. If he did, my answer would be to see the K-3iii before dissing it (or something on that line).

The issue is: why would any of the manufacturers (all of which seeing a severe market decrease, some of them in severe trouble already) invest into that, when the whole market is moving in a completely different direction? That's why I wrote about the dead-end: not because there is no potential left to improve DSLRs. But because only a minority of potential buyers is actually interested in it. And because there is a much bigger market now (mirrorless) with bigger opportunities to earn money (at all, in some cases... in other words: to survive as a brand).Propaganda again.
Pentax believes in the future of the SLR photography. They decided that, instead of going mirrorless - first because there's a need for DSLRs, and even if it becomes a niche that's fine for Pentax. And second, because earning money with mirrorless is actually very very difficult.
Haven't you seen what happened with Olympus? Nikon's troubles? Samsung's exit? But the propaganda doesn't tell this; for it, mirrorless is a panacea.

Any of the Z mount primes or high end zooms I've used so far make their F-mount counterparts look really poor.And now you're changing the goalposts again, to a very different subject. You're on a mission.
By the way, both the D FA* primes are excellent.
