What I heard is

The first wave of testers don't have 16-50mm lens in hands.

The old 18-55 lens need firmware update to comply PDAF, which is not available right now.

Although a few testers who do have 16-50mm to test reported mixed bag.

Some said they are not faster than older NEX.

Some said they are much faster than fastest NEX, on par with m43.

I don't find it that strange, as most don't have a a camera with a production version of the firmware. So they can't really tell a lot about how good (or bad) it is.

  • ...with producers, about not disclosing some shortcomings;
  • but this doesn't apply to independent users,
  • and seldom prevented early testers in the past to asses how some new features might be faring (usually expressing a hidden or even overt hope that the final version will display a marked improvement)
