A6000 AF Speed Speculation
10 months ago

I hate to start a rumor thread, but...

Previous reports seemed to suggest that Sony was focusing on speed, particularly focus speed, for 2014.

New reports suggest, regarding the A6000: "But the new sensor has phase detection pixel for improvement focusing on moving object." (sic x3, emphasis mine)

Are we to assume that this is the same 5R/5T/6 PDAF implementation, and it really only helps AF-C for moving objects? Or are we finally going to see something closer to SLR performance (less hunting and faster acquisition for stationary targets)? I know it may be too early to tell, but this is looking more like marketing than actual engineering evolution, unfortunately.
