Now if Sony would only put on-sensor phase detection AF (like Nikon V1), on their NEX cameras, than I would definitely be listening!

Now why didn't we see on-sensor phase detection in the D4/ D800?
Maybe that tech isn't quite ready for prime time as the V1 shows.

Unlike the Fujifilm version, The Nikon V1 demonstrates the on sensor phase detection technology does work in the real world. I have tried it out and AF is at least as fast as an a77, and probably more accurate and faster. It's just a matter of time before on sensor PDAF makes it's way into larger sensors of all brands, which will be a very welcome improvement over the separate AF module set-up in DSLRs and SLTs of today.
