Not marketing hype, but hands on.

"From what we were able to see, the camera focuses slightly faster than the previous NEX 6 but it isn’t anything with blazing speed. "

We need more hands-on reports.

As I thought, the blazing fast AF speed may only work when there is extremely high contast, ie black and white edge in bright light

Yep, common sense is not so common anymore...in bright light they are all fast, in a lower light basketball gym it's not going to be the "fastest"...

Why not? It is a relative term.

"The fastest" in absolute terms in that gym hall is a DSLR, is that your point?

But a venue like that needs lowest shutter lag - subject may be pre-focused already.

What I meant Henry was the PDAF is not going to be active in a lower light venue...and the AF is going to slow considerably...like the Nex-6 unless Sony has really changed the Hybrid System considerably...

Mr Ichiro Kitao, I support the call to upgrade the FZ50.
I will not only buy one but two no questions asked...
