PDAF like the A7.....

Once again we have a PDAF technology that is similar to the 5R/T/6/A7 that really does not solve the problem.  Will this technology work well in low light? No. Is this technology able to compete with a DSLR? No.

When a manufacture develops a technology that works better than the PDAF found in a DSLR we will know it because it  will not be disguised with words, rather they will trumpet it to the heavens and pronounce it a DSLR killer because that's what it will be.

Does PDAF work OK for the average consumer? Yes just not for action. Granted you can capture some action, but I think you are lucky to get a 50% in focus rate shooting with a 200mm lens.
