Re: They lost me at "Blazing fast autofocus"

What "many a CDAF cameras"?

RX100 is the first and closest-related example that comes to mind. Olympus EM5. Panasonic's current generation m43 cameras.

Look, no need to get defensive there, Igor. The RX1 AF is slow, there's no beating around the bush on that one. Some are bothered by it, some others actually learn to take better photos specifically because this limitation makes them think a shot through. Happy and quick snapping does not always equate to masterpieces. I personally appreciate the RX1, slow AF and all, and am taking every bit of pleasure in spending time with it.

Describing the AF as slow is not accurate.
I find it reasonably fast to be honest.
I prefer the always accuracy of contrast detect against the instability of phase detect

It can't track but very few cameras can.
Although I am interested why dcresource described it as blazing. Perhaps there is a setting we don't know about.
