I agree with what's been said, it's not as good as the LA-EA2, it's definitely not as good as a DSLR, but it is an improvement over what we had before. I LOVED my 5n, but the focusing bothered me. I put up with it because it was otherwise such a great camera. On my 6, focusing is better. I still hope some day that on-sensor PDAF technology will develop to be as good as a DSLR, but the main thing for me is, focusing is now less of a problem, and I don't notice the problems I had before with my 5n focusing (at least not as much).

So, it's somewhere in the middle. But, it's definitely an improvement. A noticeable step in the right direction that still leaves the DSLR (or LA-EA2) as a clearly better focusing option.

I have owned Nikon and Sony DSLR's and a 5N. I agree 100% with golfpan. Focus speed is somewhere in the middle of the 5N and consumer DSLR. My 1650 has been a fantastic lens and I haven't had any back-focus issues.

Considering all the pros and cons, the 6 is my all-time favorite camera.
