I'm not an Autofocus elitist - so nearly imperceptible differences in AF "speed" are meaningless to me. For this reason, I'd be more than happy to trade in a millisecond or two on the AF side to have a great Sony A mount camera without the stupid SLT mirror.

I also like the accuracy better with cameras like the A7 and A7r - none of this shift error with fast lenses.

The difference in AF speed is much more than a millisecond or two. It's big enough that it can make or break getting an in focus shot for sports or children playing. In low light the speed difference is quite obvious. The focusing accuracy with my 35mm f1.8 wide open is very good with both my A65 and A77. All in all my experience tells me you are incorrect on every one of your points. IMO the SLT is great and the 1/2 stop of light loss is insignificant and below iso 1600 has no effect on IQ.

Look at the picture, not the pixels
Miss use of the ability to do 100% pixel peeping is the bane of digital photography because it causes people to fret over inconsequential issues.
