I'm bothering with the same question, is on-sensor PDAF any good. And when it becomes good enough to replace SLT?

My first hand on-sensor PDAF experience is only with Samsung NX200. It's marketed as very fast and etc... In real life it did not perform as marketed. Lot of AF errors all the time. Did some street photography walk and got too many photos to reject because of AF issues.

If you look at the Canon 70D tests DPR did..

The On Sensor Focusing looks more accurate  than the normal AF

They just don't have the software working yet for tracking.  So for portrait and landscape it might already be a better choice..
