DPREVIEW: no AF or metering testing?
Jan 7, 2012

While all the rigorous ISO, dynamic range, resolution, etc. testing that each and every DSLR goes through before it's reviewed on this site, why haven't they implemented a way to test camera's metering and autofocus? They simply compare specs. I would think creating a variety of studio scenes, artificially lit, could put the metering system through a good test. Something similar could be done for autofocus, with moving subjects, etc.

Autofocus and Metering represent a large part of any DSLR, yet they don't appear to be tested anywhere near as much as pixel peeping at high ISOs (which take up many pages in a review).

Just my 2c.
