Imaging Resource writes about RX100 "Continuous AF mode slow to lock."

about the LX5 "The Panasonic LX5 is fast to focus and extremely fast when you pre-focus."

about the LX7 "Fast autofocus and shutter lag"

+ I've actually tested all 3 and can speak first hand about the matter.

There might be some confirmation bias going on here. No unbiased reading of the Imaging Resource measurements would give the LX-5 the edge.

The pre-focused acquisition time is 0.012 on the LX-5 vs. 0.013 on the RX100: the LX-5 is faster! Full aperture continuous AF is slow at f1.8. Terrible! Best to ignore every other number, they don't count.

"Looking at the Sony RX100's ability to determine that it's properly focused when shooting the same target multiple times, its autofocus speed is very fast for it class. The Sony RX100's full-autofocus shutter lag (with the subject at a fixed distance) was only 0.153 second in Single-area AF mode. This increased slightly to 0.266 second in Multi-area AF mode. That's much faster than the average CSC, and competitive with many SLRs."

Best to ignore those words as well.
