Just done a very quick & crude comparison video -

It certainly shows the new firmware has eradicated the focus 'hunting' experienced before the update.



Pdaf doesn't work in movie mode and only works on stills with f6.3 and up like f8.

Somehow this mix-up will never die. PDAF works with Aperture values *lower* than f/6.3 (5.6, 3.5, 2, etc). That is to say, large apertures are required for PDAF, not large aperture *values*.

I do wish this crucial oversight didn't make it into the instructions. A simple parenthetical reference (like you just made) adding to that point would have prevented all this.
