According to the latest SAR story the new, fast hybrid AF on the A6000 is not currently compatible with the older 18-55 kit lens:


Strange and surprising if true

Can anybody confirm or refute this comment?

It is not true.

A6000 works very well with the SEL1855, if you update the firmware on the lens for PDAF - version 02.

It works with all PDAF sensors, in WIde mode you can see the little green squares dancing all over the frame.

Do you find 18-55 is about same speed as 16-50? In terms of AF I mean. Thanks.
