He also rather obviously has much more experience with the Canon and none of his comparisons really regarded BIF.

For my uses, the 2 big factors are, the slower acquisition time with the A1 and lack of eye AF during video for any bird or animal. Video is important to me and any delay can mean a missed shot.

Fair enough about the video. But what "slower acquisition time" are you talking about and in which application would that matter? For reference, recently I've been shooting swallows IF, so I am aware about actual limits of the A1. Which obviously vary a lot with my choice of glass.
