Re: How Much Faster is T4i Autofocus in Live View Compared to T3i? Real World Experience Please?

I own t4i (t4i viewfinder focus is darn fast but I realise that's no help to you). t4i is already faster in contrast-detect focus (outside the center of the frame). It begins to become snappy with center point AF, good light and 18-135 STM lens - often within a second, but not always. So you might miss just that golden opportunity .

I would take Ian's advice. Even with t4i prefocussing is the best strategy.
