Wouldn't it be nice to have fast reliable CDAF to supplement PDAF. For many people who bought D800's for studio or landscape work I would think that CDAF would be far better.

Matter of fact that's just how this camera should be used under these situations. On tripod with liveview MF or CDAF and MLU. The best PDAF will probably never be able to match it.

One more thought is CDAF with MLU kind of saying we could/should just take the mirror out and go mirrorless. That could be one direction we go especially when faster CDAF is developed.
