We can see that this does rsult in very fast AF on the Nikon 1 system, but 1 lenses are optimized from the ground up to take advantage of it.

I haven't seen any evidence that this feature works well with un-optimized lenses.

The jury is still out, at this point it seems like a marketing gimmick.

The System 1 is very quick abd tracks well with native lenses.  With an adopter and using non-native lenses only allowes center point AF and is kind f slow but useable.
