maybe a camera with fast AF would suit you even better

Maybe a camera with AF times in the 0.1 to 0.3s range would make you even happier than this camera and its 0.6-0.7s AF times.

but you wouldn't know, having not tried it

Of course compact cameras have had sluggish AF times for years in the early days of digital photography, and people lived with that. It was fine for non-moving objects, and for moving objects you needed luckk.

But in 2012, for a camera in that price range, such slow performance is just not acceptable. Especially not given that the large-ish sensor and the direct controls and the price, would suggest that the target user group is made of enthusiasts.
