Disagree. Sure software plays a part, but...

a) the hardware needs to get the data from the sensor at a decent rate.

b) the CPU  needs enough processing power.

That said I was playing with my X-E1 in a dimly lit room yesterday and was a bit surprised that when I tried to use AF-S / manual focus on a subject that was just about in focus about 6 feet away (as I'd just focussed on it and moved the camera a couple of inches) that the lens went all the way to min focus distance and back to 6 feet.  Surely the camera could see that the contrast was decreasing (my eyes could !) and reverse the AF direction so it moved focus towards the 6ft distance, before it reached min focus.
