Difficult Decision to purchase Sony A7


I have done a lot of research on and found A7 seems best choice but something is preventing me from purchase for some reason.

I have seen youtube video of AF in low light test between Sony A7 and Canon 70D. Sony A7 missed focus 8 out of 21 while Canon 70D seems to focus fine most of time.

Im having difficult to understand why Sony does have issue problem with low light focus in A7 when it has both Phase and Contrast detection AF included while Canon is the same but with exception of that Canon has on sensor phase detection in CMOS sensor compare to Sony is not.

Will Sony firmware update make any difference to fix the AF issue problem in low light?
