fast AF
Aug 1, 2014

(Quoting from DPreview):

"The FZ1000 has very impressive autofocus performance in all lightning conditions.

One reason for that may be its 'Depth from Defocus' technology.

The moment that you halfway-press the shutter release the FZ1000 quickly takes two exposures and determines the distance to the subject by comparing sharpness.

That leads to less of the 'hunting' that can be an issue with contrast detect AF systems.

the camera (is) able to keep subjects in-focus as they move toward the camera. (However), it works best when using AF-C or AF-F focus modes".

Wonder when the  'Depth from Defocus'  technology will find its way into a m4/3 camera (That would leave the E-M1 to the users of legacy phase detection lenses)
