for S-AF.

Just what is that? Please write out your words instead of abbreviation that are not standard.

S-AF stands for Single Auto Focus. It is where the camera focuses on an area one time and doesn't then try to change focus. When acquiring quick focus and taking a picture in a split second, you don't want a camera that is as accurate as these trying to re-focus.

DPR has repeatedly said comments like these about the latest mirrorless cameras...

Single AF acquisition is impressively fast - using most Micro Four Thirds lenses will result in some of the fastest focus on any system.

Of course you already know that the CDAF focusing used by these cameras is also the most accurate from the DPR article/report...

1. Phase-detection autofocus (even using still targets and center-point only) wasn’t nearly as accurate as contrast detection.

2. The contrast-detection autofocus was about as accurate as the most careful manual focusing.

So there you go.

- some of the fastest focus on any system.

- the MOST accurate focusing

Who wouldn't want that??
