You seem to want to defend your purchase even before you have the camera in hand.

Your conclusions based on a hands-on preview are baseless, but you invested $500 into it. I didn't.

Here's the context on AF:

Of course it should be ok. f1.4 on a small sensor will ensure that DoF won't ever be too narrow, like they are implying, and many things will be sharp and easy to focus on. They used the example of the tip of a pen, but unless you like shooting objects only to post on internet forums, this is not the most professional, nor valuable, type of test.

You seem to have an ax to grind.

Your conclusions based on a written hands on preview are baseless.

Here are the review's Highlights:

The f/1.4 lens is great in low light with smooth bokeh
Autofocus was snappy and accurate enough to cope with shallow depth of field
