Incorrect. AF accuracy is the biggest ADVANTAGE of the A7 and mirroless in general. AF speed on the A7 isn't the greatest in low light but other mirrorless cameras, such as my EM1, are faster than, well, anything.

The A6000 changed this but the A7 and all Nex models have iffy AF especially in low light.

Again, this speaks to speed, not accuracy.

If I was considering an A7 I would wait. The next version of the A7 will likely have fast PDAF.

The A7 already has PDAF...
