PDAF vs CDAF on NEX?
Aug 21, 2012

Hi all,

Sorry if this is quite a basic question.

I read all the rumors of the new PDAF (Phase Detection AF) on the upcoming new NEX-5R and NEX-6.

Is PDAF any better than CDAF?

I read that it is "faster", so the auto-focus will be much faster.

And I agree if this is one of the advantage, because my NEX-5 auto-focus is a bit slow.

But, will this help to improve out-of-focus (OOF) that users often get using NEX?

Because I also read quite a lot that issue and experienced myself.

The NEX will focus on the background, instead of the subject.

Thanks.

NEX5R Sony Alpha NEX-5 Sony Alpha NEX-6
