We need fast PDAF and fast CDAF

For AF, the X20 has good accurate, no probelm there. Low light, sometimes hunt, and not lock, however.

Ok now that is the most concerning point for me. Hunting in low light???? Like Canon point-and-shoots hunt, or better?

That is the problem with on sensor PDAF. It only works in good light, just like with the Nikon 1 series. In low light it goes back to CDAF.

You need both fast PDAF for continuous AF in good light and fast CDAF for low light. PDAF cannot replace CDAF. They just complement each other. This is something both manufacturers and camera purchasers forget.
