Re: No, probably not a "false restriction".

If the A6000 didn't also rely on CDAF, you could have a point. But it's still a hybrid system that needs both to work. And for as long that is the case, it won't work well with A mount lenses (which have non CDAF optimized motors, gearing and chips).

Once precision/fine tuning in the last stage of AF is also covered with on sensor PDAF, then yes, A mount lenses could be supported (when profiled...) with OSPDAF.

You are right about it with its CDAF.  Honestly, I forgot about the CDAF portion of its focusing system and was mainly concerned with the on sensor PDAF portion.  My main point was the ability of the on sensor PDAF portion should have the ability to work with A-mount from a technical standpoint.

If the other poster's comment is true that the A6000 PDAF works up to F/13 and from there the CDAF kicks in, then A-mount lenses should work fine if focused wide open like they do on DSLR/DSLT cameras.
