Focusing is supposed to be similar to live view which I just really happen to pay attention to while shooting last night at the fair, fast but no cigar.


Personally I'm very impressed as the PD-AF focus speed looks dramatically better than ANY DSLR live-view focus, EVER.

How does the Sony SLT thingamabobs do regarding AF ? I know that the SLT tech effects high ISO but I haven't really seen many reports re AF. Basing a claim on being better than DSLR live view is not really saying much

I played with a A99 for a while. Focus seems ok which means I did not miss much as you only notice things you miss . I did not like the viewfinder though.  There should be no difference between live view on the back screen or shooting through the EVF. Actually the viewfinder has a higher density.
