    Just wondering, has the focus speed improved with the new 1.07 firmware? I notice that there is a QK-focus mode now, but when using it does it mean that you don't see the actual focused image until after you press the shutter?

    yes the screen does freeze when focusing, but it's very fast and precise.

    The AF is much faster under QK mode under 1.07.

    Under 1.07, although under QK mode the screen still freezes, it is barely noticeable. This is because AF is achieved quickly under 1.07. So the screen freeze does not really affect composition anymore.

    Under 1.06 and 1.05, the AF was slow and went hunting. During the "hunting phase", the screen is frozen which was very irritating and prevented proper composition.

    Alternatively, under 1.07 you can choose FR-focus instead of QK-focus. Using FR-focus, there will be no screen freeze at all, but the AF will be the same old speed as 1.06, just that you can see the AF hunting phase entirely and compose without any freezing.

    You do realise that the discussion above is all within the space of milliseconds to a second.

    IMHO, as I am primarily a street photographer, I feel the GXR is just okay for street candids in good light. In most other situations, I still prefer GRDIII for street candids or children photography, because the snap function is more forgiving on GRDIII than on GXR. For portraits, macros and still subject photography, the GXR is clearly superior in every respect.

    Ah that's nice to know.

    By the way, does the GXR allow you to choose a smaller focus point, can't seem to find any option to adjust the size in the manual.

    One of the small things I'm mildly irritated by with my GRD2 is that the focus box is a little too big for my liking.

    There is Multi AF, and Spot AF.

    Under Spot AF, the size of the focus box in the middle is fixed and cannot be adjusted.

    Dpreview has a good full review of the GXR now. Is it available for demo in most of the usual camera shops here? Any idea what's the street price now?

    This Youtube Video shows increased speed of AF in Firmware 1.07, as compared to older firmware.

    Noticed that AF was fast on S10 24-72.

    that A12 lense is really really top-notch! all owners should really invest in that.
