Re: do NOT buy a DSLR!

if you want very precise AF then remember that DSLRs use a system based on making two different optical paths match, which can cause errors and need user adjustment. Whereas the AF system used by mirrorless cameras or superzooms is much more precise and also lens-independent.

Remember you still have CDAF with a DSLR, you just simply swap to LV. It's usually not as fast but the times we prefer CDAF isn't usually times we need speed anyways. The best rule of thumb is, use PDAF any time you MUST have tracking speedy AF, and use CDAF whenever you shoot stationary.

Some people only use one or the other just because of preference, but DSLRs still offer both which can't be said for mirrorless or SLT.
