Is xt-1 another in long line to make fastest AF claim, only to be total letdown?

You see it in these press releases, on after the other. The new Sony 6000 to be the latest, to claim the worlds fastest AF. The xt-1 before that. I played with the xt-1 at the store, and after watching the thing hunt, you can add another camera to the 'yeah right' list of marketing fables.

So why, why do they do this, making claims like this? Ultimately it just pizzes people off when it's total bs. It's no where near as fast as a dslr or m4/3. That pretty much means it's slower than 95% of the cameras the claim would lead you to believe it beats. Epic fail. Don't make that claim if you can't stand behind it Fuji.
