X100 has slow AF that's why Fuji brought out the X100s with fast AF and several different ways of doing manual focus. That aspect of that camera is a total hit and people are loving it.

Nikon's leaving the AA filter off is a good thing and they are doing it routinely now. There will be a significant inprovement in the IQ over Nex cameras with the same but later gen sensor. I don't know why Nikon (except for cost of course) did not put the latest version of that Sony chip in this camera. They could have had PDAF focusing as well as the CDAF focusing and made the camera more competitive.
