Anyone had a good try out of the AF speed between the 2 cams during the COMEX?

I was there but my hands were too occupied to try both properly :confused:

TIA!

Agree.... but what I'm interested is the AF algorithm differences in real world situations ;)

i believe both are goood, and not much of difference in normal lighting condition, as for low light condition, the difference might just be a very slight difference. after all both are using the same AF algorithm of the brand mid-range dSLR, so shouldn't be that bad
