AF at wide angles ...

All of the shots at wide angle were dead on. Most wide angle photos were done at the widest setting of 16mm, some with people in the foreground to defocus the background intentionally, some of wide scenics done at infinity. Reliable, predictable results every time.

As I said, focusing is not a problem with this camera. Wide, telephoto, moving subjects, dim light ... nothing seemed to deter it from achieving focus. It was just a brief time I had with the camera, but I searched for difficult situations purposely (most of the shots themselves are hardly works of art The one thing I didn't test was focusing back into the light, something I find a lot of auto focus systems have difficulties with.
