GF1 - 100% AF success rate

Finally got to unload my 16GB card from my GF1. That's the bad thing about having a large card, not having to constantly unload it, and then when I do it's massive LOL.

There were like 500 stills and lots of videos. I quickly looked through those stills and did not come across a single shot that's OOF with any of my lenses, 20, 14-45, and 14-140. I cannot say the same about any of the DSLRs I had, 500 shots and not a single OOF picture - Canon or Nikon, cheap kit lenses or expensive pro lenses. This Panasonic contrast-detect AF system is quite impressive.

PS I know about the false AF lock at macro distances that I've seen happen on both GF1 and GH1 - completely OOF yet camera gives a good lock. I got a lot of those when I first got the camera and was just testing it. Have never seen that happen at normal shooting distances.
