Thanks, Jason.

Does it have to be faster than f/5.6 for PDAF to work? How about f/5.6?

From my nex-6 manual: "When the aperture value is greater than F6.3, Phase Detection AF is unavailable. You can only use Contrast AF.  Phase Detection AF is available only with compatible lenses. If an incompatible lens is attached, you will be unable to use Phase Detection AF."

I take this to mean the following:

1.  Aperture needs to be equal or larger diameter to F6.3 (i.e., f stop # 6.3 or smaller number).

2.  Use of a compatible lens (w/ updated firmware).

If the above criteria are satisfied, PDAF should be active.

my $0.02,
