or Sony risks to become slower brand among mirrorless siblings. It used to be Fuji was slowest in the bunch, but with recent firmware upgrades and new processor chips Fuji have caught up and even passed some Sony cameras in terms of AF speed.

Now in January 28th a new X-T1 camera is coming out with 8fps with tracking AF! Rumor is potential customers for OMD are advised to wait for X-T1 - meaning it could have really fast AF.

Nikon 1, OMD, now Fuji may have really fast AF camera - it seems the only one left behind is Sony and Canon EOS-M. We had great hopes for A7/R AF speed - in reality it turned out AF is mediocre (in terms of speed). Basically we haven't seen any real improvements since 2010. I would hope this time with new NEX-7 successor coming up in Q1 2014 Sony would give us really new technology in AF speed rather than BS marketing naming for same old AF. It's time to step up or drag behind others.
