I think we are now seeing the benefits of the patent cross license agreement between Sony and Aptina last March. Aptina developed the Nikon 1 sensor that has fast on-sensor PDAF.

Yes, it could be. My 1" sensored Nikon 1 is definitely faster than my NEX-5R, and probably faster than the also-1" sensored RX100. But the Aptina sensor is only part of the story. The Nikon 1 has a very-smart dual core processor.
