Re: OK, "sure to be controversial" doesn't seem to have panned out. That's a good sign.

What Thom seems to be saying is that in one of  the outlier niches of photography, some cameras are better than others. No surprise there. I think what was really telling was his thoughts that DSLR AF hasn't improved much in the past 7 years or so. Coming from Pentax, which finally this year got decent auto focus, I am surprised. It sounds like Pentax has been a decade behind everyone else in AF technology.

On sensor PDAF is brand new tech. No surprise is isn't up to separate sensor PDAF. The original PDAF was pretty rudimentary by today's standards, but we all thought it was fabulous in the 1980s.
