Just found this on th eSony site: http://blog.sony.com/press/sony-electronics-introduces-the-versatile-α6000-interchangeable-lens-camera-with-worlds-fastest-autofocus-system1/

So, fastest AF seems to be running rampant through mirrorless camera announcements lately (e.g., see the Fujifilm X-T1). But it's nice to see Sony at least believing they can make the claim about one of their cameras. Hmmmm.

Snippet: Even quicker than most professional DSLRs, the phenomenal autofocus speed of the α6000 camera is powered by Sony’s advanced Hybrid AF system. The new model features a focal plane phase-detection AF sensor with an extremely wide autofocus coverage area – 179 focal points– that is teamed with high-precision contrast-detection AF. This potent combination allows the camera to accurately track and respond to a subject moving through nearly the entire frame, and to shoot at an eye-popping speed of up to 11 frames per second with continuous autofocus. It’s an unprecedented combination of speed and frame coverage in today’s market.

Another snippet: The Sony α6000 compact interchangeable lens camera will be available in April 2014 in black and silver in a kit with a compact, versatile 16-50mm motorized zoom lens (model SELP1650) for about $800. It will also be offered separately as a body for about $650.

Love it. What a completely irrelevant spec.

I don't understand your comment. Are you saying it is irrelevant to you after it was broadcast in the subject line before you opened the topic or are you claiming it is irrelevant to everyone because you said so?
