Re: Hybrid is not that fast

Even PDAF will be slow, as reported

As reported by?

A NEX with Sony PDAF adapter has no difference in performance as per Andy Westlake.

New dSLR lenses might make it, even on a mirrorless, but what is the relevance for Oly and Panny, who have no dSLR?

Canon EF-S and EF owners who would otherwise purchase an m43 body and instead buy Canon mirrorless because it would back up their FF or APS-C DSLR bodies since their lenses work.

Here's a situation: someone owns a 7D and 3 EF or EF-S lenses. Looking to buy a smaller mirrorless so that it can be brought in situations where bulk is a problem. Get a Canon mirrorless with 1 or 2 Canon mirrorless lenses. Advantage: The mirrorless body can be used as the backup for the 7D in situation where bulk is not a problem, it focuses as fast and accurate with the EF/EF-S lenses, so there is no loss of functionality.

Where would this advantage be in buying the competition (m4/3)?

No competiton either in size or weight with what O&P already have.

But how would you know how big or heavy the Canon mirrorless will be? Even if it does not compete in size and weight, but in functionality and versatility it may.
