I'm not so sure about that video. It mentions nothing about how he has the AF set up on any of the cameras. I'm always sceptical about the use of words like "crushes it" when it comes to comparisons between very competent devices or technologies.

Anyway, the AF on the A7iii is perfectly fine - not the best ever, but noting to complain about at all. The problems you're taking about in your opening post are all down to the 50 1.8 lens, which is just an old, slow design. And it will be that way on any camera.

I've an A1 arriving on Tuesday. I can try it on that then, and let you know how it performs on Sony's fastest camera. But I don't expect it to be good.
