that is a big surprise in fact... so Sony after all was not able to edge Panasonic out

I think now it is a good time to start comparing on-sensor PDAF of E-M1 with say A7.

Strangely enough I can't find anything on the net about it - except comments about some unreliability of A7's AF. IIRC, successor of A77 also should have the on-sensor PDAF, but not yet released.

Turning that around, if my brief research is right, it appears that Sony's on-sensor PDAF tech is simply not ready yet and Oly decided to go with Panny's sensor.
