Nothing to start wetting your innerwear about, IMO, if, remotely, true. As well, how truthful of a rumour can it be, if DPR didn't run with it

It all boils down to the sensor wand what it does, no news on new SAFOX and the 40Mp capabilities, well I put that down to wishful thinking.

And to be honest an upgrade to 27 af sensors, all cross and all tracking seems to be a bit too much alll of a sudden.

It only affects how many you need to turn off to match the processing power of the Prime engine in use

k10/20d you had to switch off 10 to have anything resembling AF-c

K5x you have to switch off 6 to get decent AF-c though switching off 9 sometimes makes it to fast.

If 27 is true and it still Safox back-end this promises ridiculous quick AF you won;t need predictive AF it be there before your ready anyway

Given that promised speed 3d tracking becomes possible as the CPU will have latency when using less points to process received data.

so in summary 27 -50 -1000 point means nothing in itself the underlying technology in use is more important a 10,000 point af using the cmos would be crap, 15 point based on Safox would give a decent hike in performance.
