The 5d3 does autofocus during video!

5D's have been extensively used for professional and even television broadcast video.

Those are the people who dont use AF.

Many people, especially pros, use Magic Lantern if doing a lot of video, and this makes life so much easier if you need to re focus during video.

The only Canon DSLR that has constant AF, like a video camera, is the 650D, and that can do it becuase it has a hybrid sensor, designed for this.
