Re: 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.

But as other posters in this thread has said, what IS the reason on sensor PDAF is slower than PDAF to begin with? Never understood that part. For example my NEX6 has on sensor PDAF but it doesn't improve the speed at all. It's just marketing crap.
