Some facts about real AF speed of A7R, NEX and some other popular cameras... :)

So here are the numbers from imagine-resource: "Time from fully pressing shutter button to image capture, with the lens already at the proper focal distance setting".

Single Area AF mode (Multi Area AF mode in brackets only if differs from Single Area substantially).

From slowest to fastest:

Canon EOS-M - 0.742 second (Multi-Area AF mode 0.878)

Fuji X-E1 - 0.438 second with 18-55 kit (Multi-Area AF mode 0.523 second)

A7R - 0.359 second with FE55f18

Canon 6D - 0.290 second (Multi-Area AF mode 0.206)

NEX-6 - 0.257 second with 16-50 kit

Nikon D7100 - 0.251 second (Multi-Area AF mode 0.297)

NEX-5N - 0.235 second with 18-55 kit

RX10 - 0.225 second

NEX-7 - 0.223 second with 18-55 kit

Nikon D800 - 0.209 second (Multi-Area AF mode 0.224)

RX100 - 0.153 second (wide) 0.266 second (tele)

OMD E-M1 - 0.139 second with 12-40 lens

Canon 7D - 0.131 second

Canon 5D-III - 0.120 second (Multi-Area AF mode 0.142)

Sasmung NX300 - 0.116 second with 18-55 kit (Multi-Area AF mode 0.299)

Nikon V1 - 0.097 second with 10-30 kit (Multi-Area AF mode 0.234 second)

Ok, so couple of surprises:

1. Canon 6D DSLR is slower than all NEX cameras

2. NEX-7 is fastest from all NEX cameras

3. D7100 DSLR is slower than NEX-7/5N and same as NEX-6

4. Samsung NX300 is faster than OMD E-M1

5. OMD E-M1 is faster than Canon 7D

6. D800 DSLR is almost same speed as NEX-7

7. A7R is slower than all NEX cameras
