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.

His sig should tell you.

As in dogs? Doesn't explain why the acquisition would be slow. And if you consider Mark Galer's various dog sequences, it seems effective enough even with a "mere" A9?

Even the A7Riv had decent AF. Mirrorless comparison (a site run by a Sony guy) found you could get a 63% hit rate with it at 8 FPS. So that's about 5 images a second and 20 in a 4 second burst, or the same amount as an X-T2 That is good enough for most,

With an X-T4 he was getting 95 sharp images in 4 seconds, and no one thinks the X-T4 has the best AF. Even with Olympus he was getting over 50 'perfectly sharp' images in a 4 second burst, and with the A6400 he gets about 26. So when someone posts a sequence of birds or dogs, it is actually pretty common if you know what you are doing.
