Re: Another camera choice decision

Thank you. I had the same thought. Many reviews make a big issue of continuous AF and i can see why it is important in certain situations, but my feeling has been that one time AF quickness and accuracy is probably more important for me.

It's basically the last aspect in which a typical DSLR can still do unequivocally better than a mirrorless camera, so that's probably why reviewers focus on it. Any improvements in that area (as with the A6000, E-M1, etc) open up mirrorless formats for even more usage cases and makes then even easier to recommend without reservation.

In general quick AND accurate AF is more important tho, I'd agree, and accurate is something CDAF on mirrorless already does better than any DSLR. It's much easier to get precise AF (particularly in low light with a lens wide open) with many mirrorless bodies.
