But you would rather have inaccurate fast focus than a few milliseconds slower AF that is accurate?

I'll take the accurate focus myself....even if a bit slower...I use a 7D and a FZ35 and very successful with both within their respective limitations...the 7D is super fast, but had accurate focusing problems so it went back to Canon for a tune up, seems to do OK now...

I have E620 and 2X TC with 70-300 Oly waiting on me, so I'll see how slow it is, but if it is accurate I'll definitely keep it....

"no no no please i dont want fast autofocus give me something slow and with no shake reduction while your at it"

as to the relative difference between the cameras abilities cant say since i've never used either
I agree with all you said here, except for the room thing.

As to not using the cameras in question, that makes three of us. Neither TCav, nor myself have used these cameras either, but one chooses to be an authority. From what I've seen, they both seem to be very nice.

My purpose in this disgusting dialog is to challenge false statements uttered out of a lack of knowledge of the subject. A photo is worth a thousand words, so I'll cease.

TCav will have to have the last word, kind of like a punch-down-clown, and he'll likely fade from this thread and start again on the next.
