If I may be forgiven for straying, the best mirrorless cameras for continuous focus tracking may be the Sony NEX's, models 5R and 6. They employ hybrid phase detection auto-focus. (PDAF)

Sure about that? Did you see this test?


Here is a discussion:


From the first link, I see that the NEX models had the highest scores, save the NSX1000.

Sony NEX 7: 12.5

Sony NEX 5R: 13

Sony NEX 6: 15

I had expected the GH3 to win this one.

It's only that in this case a lower value is better (see the test description). So in fact all the MFT cameras tested are ahead of all the NEX cameras tested.

I don't think so. The reporter talked about the 5R outperforming his older 5n while doing test shots of his running toddler, at a Best Buy store. The 5R had the numerically higher score. It is designed for this purpose (same as the 6) with the addition of the new hybrid PDAF.
