2: my second concern relates to my first - will all of the added PDAF pixels spread across the sensor that give fast focus my lenses can't use have an affect on image quality? will resolution or dynamic range or color depth be hurt?

Short answer no. Look at it like this, the PDF pixels are less than 200 out of 24,000,000. That's 0.0000000083%. So that's at most 0.0000000083% worst. I challenge anyone to be able to discern the difference. You could have more of a problem with dead pixels. You would have more of a problem with dust.

but they all add up - on top of the pdaf pixels you will still have dead pixels and you will still have dust - each thing you take away from actually forming an image just multiplies the problems and if those pdaf pixels don't actually add anything because they won't work with my lenses why add them? or better yet why remove image forming pixels and replace them with AF pixels that don't actually AF with my lenses?
