ok I see. I'll Contact Sony about that mistake. I'm pretty sure they changed that today because I though the f3 didn't have PDAF either and I got that information from their site.

On the focus by wire thing. i'll have to try it myself this could be a deal breaker for me at least as far a E-mount lenses go, I've experienced on other cameras the inability to focus on a fine point in a by wire system. but like has been said I could use all my SR mount lenses,

Glenn, did you shop in Toronto? The 5N's seem to be sold out, and in some stores the 5R's are the same or cheaper than the F3's.  Anyway, I recommend getting the 5R as it has many new features and perhaps more importantly, it outperforms the F3 in several ways especially image quality and focus speed.
