Face Detection is very good

I thought I read in one of Sony's official descriptions that they've actually upgraded to eye detection, so that it will focus on one eye even if the head is turned. Am I mistaken? And if not, how accurate is the detection?

Yes, it works even center point AF is selected. It works if the face is slightly better than a profile. It works even with the eyes closed. The eyes, or the nearer eye, will be sharp.
