Is having a working AF system unrealistic?

The authors one concern which is AF was not addressed in the firmware update ,countless threads on this , would you like to see more ?

Again, you don't address the full question. I specifically asked what promises Nikon broke. I'm aware of none.

It's not unreasonable to expect AF performance as good as the competition if you look at the long term product roadmap.  It's unrealistic to expect it in the next couple of firmware updates, which is what my referenced comment was about in the context of that entire thread.

I don't know why anyone even responds to you anymore. You're just a broken record on this.
