would be.

Is ALL DSLR's perform miserably on featureless white targets like the sweat shirt used for the "test".

Anybody who does not know this has no more than beginners expertise using AF systems.

Conclusions using a beginners (or more probably an idiots) level of understanding on how to use AF well are of little more value than garbage.

Practicing and thinking can do more for good photography than buying or consuming.
