What is perfect auto focussing?

1. Landscape photography - should camera divide the scene in thirds to focus on the 1st third?

2. Street photography - focus on the closest object - people (eye) override

3. Movie - like street photography with soft transitions

4. CAF - what are you looking for?

5. AF Tracking - When tracking a person, should the camera track also when in a crowd?

6. Single shot - fastest AF ever? Accuracy?

7. 10 FPS - focus in-between shots

8. What is preferred, single point, complete frame

If you had to design the perfect AF camera, what are the key AF areas you will have perfect and which are secondary?

I know its a difficult subject - It will be interesting to understand what is important and what is less critical.....
