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.

Or it could be the huge DOF from the tiny sensor means the tolerance for getting it in focus is huge, and can be done more rapidly.
