Upcoming Sony Autofocus Technology
Aug 15, 2012

If you watch Sony Alpha Rumors, you saw something a week ago about "dual focus" in the A99. There was some patent referenced that I couldn't figure out.....it looked like a system that used the pellicle mirror, a PD array above the mirror, and some PD elements in the image sensor.

Today, there is an SR5 rumor that upcoming NEX cameras will use a sensor with some PD elements built in.

My question is, how long until some of this technology makes its way to the APS-C Alpha bodies? It sounds like it is close if you are willing to spend the better part of $3,000 for an A99, and maybe somewhat close for NEX.

Can anbody who has been watching Sony for years give their opinion? Thanks
