I actually quoted DPR. That's the issue: they're not lying. And they say it's pretty bad, as do the other reviewers. Maybe it's a question of skill in configuration or shooting, but no one (even among owners) has claimed it's anywhere near the 5D III. And yet, it's found parity in that bar graph at the end, along with a noise judgment that doesn't reflect DPR's own tests. I think it's a disservice to readers, frankly.

This is the forum where the review notification was posted. Ergo, this is where I responded. I'm active on other forums. I suppose I ought not to be surprised at the namecalling.

I'll have to agree with you on this, A99 AF isn't bad, being essentially taken from A77 (I'm not talking about the on-sensor PDAF, since in my opinion it has limited use now), but it's not on the same level with 5DmkIII and D800.
