Okay - got it. I knew what PDAF is, but the OSPDAF threw me. The prospect of very short focus times as a result of the hybrid CDAF-PDAF is what got me interested in the NEX to begin with.

(And now that I've decided to get a NEX, I realize that I'll eventually want a prime or two, and those may be A mount so they won't have that faster focus speed......Sheesh! Some people (like me) are never satisfied!)

Unless you use LA-EA2 adapter for those A-mount lenses in which case you've AF speed of DSLTs/DSLRs and AF accuracy that AF Micro Adjust feature can help towards. LA-EA1 though is better (cheaper, size, weight and mirror-less) if you want to stay with MF (AF is painfully slow, especially with SAM, somewhat with SSM and screw drive lenses are MF only).
