    Correct me if I am wrong, I always thot AF Speed is associated with lens and not body.

    i am not sure. But my observation using same lens on a high end and low end SLR generates different AF speed. It could be the entire system that make the difference.

    Depends. For systems with in camera AF motor, like Nikon AFD lenses, the camera body matters a great deal.

    I bought my camera because I needed it to fit a particular adapter. The rest were not too high up on my selection priorities

    Old Sony PnS cameras had this actually. it was their laser pattern method, worked beautifully.

    Then the americans started getting stupid about lasers blinding people and wanted to make the sale of lasers a controlled product. So sony had to switch back to the regular red light.

    The rumored A77 is said to be able to hit close to 20.. Then you need to start worrying if the shutter and sensor can take the punishment.
