Re: Why do reviews criticize the AF on the A7?

Sony will fix it. This is already an improvement over the RX1.

RX1 is so slow that I can't ever get a shot of my moving kids unless I shot at f5.6+.

The Sony a7 is little tiny bit faster than the NEX6 but still slower than OMD. The LA-EA4 speeds up the AF but only with some focus points. There are many points that makes the camera AF even slower. I think those points don't use the phase detection.

Not all cameras are perfect and you just have to pick and choose which one you can live with.
