What an irrelevant comparison

By the way: the Sony RX100 has a large sensor also but it's AF lock times are 2x to 3x faster. Looks like Canon need to either optimize their AF algorithms, or put more processing power in their cameras. Or both.

Ha ha ha. Large sensor?

Now THAT is a clueless comment. In area the Canon sensor is around 2.5 times bigger ... and it shows in the IQ.

Sony is not even competing in the same playing field so it does not have the same technological issues.

When someone beats or matches the G1 X sensor size with faster focus in the same body size you will have a point. Until then you are talking from an orifice meant for other purposes.
