Certainly very impressive! I would love to get my hands on the Sony A6000 sometime to give the new AF system a test drive too.

Its supposed to be fast, but there are a lot of complaints that it isn't accurate, or that it is inconsistent in that regard. In other words, it can move the focal point to and fro very fast, but when it locks it's not actually accurate. Im sure it's not as bad as some think but i find it hard to believe it's all BS (some sony fans refuse to believe it at all). It doesn't seem to be a camera with higher keeper rates, regardless how fast those little squares blink.

I would suggest either the EM1 or possibly the GH4, depending on how well it is reviewed to be. If i were buying right now, i would instead wait to see how the GH4 does.
