Re: NEX-7 Versus G5 still photo focusing speed.

I own a NEX-7 and have owned a G3 and used a G5.

My impression is that the Panasonics focus faster, but there's not much in it. It makes very little difference to me, but YMMV.

The thing I most like about the G5 focusing is not the speed, but the fact that you can use the EVF and touch screen at the same time. I use the flexible focus spot almost exclusively on the NEX, and the ability to move it around with the camera to your eye is great. The drawback with this is that some parts of the frame are awkward to reach. The rangefinder style of the NEX bodies ought to fix that, so I hope Sony steals the idea and implements it in future NEX bodies.
