The A700 has been said to offer the fastest AF in bright and low light according to Pop Photo. Faster than the Canon 40D and Nikon D300. Though, of course, we're splitting hairs here. As I'm sure the difference is in mere ms.
That being said...
I'm sure the testing was done with a non-SSM lens so the in-camera AF motor was used. What if you were to use a G series lens which does have the SSM motor? Or one of the upcoming CZ SSM lenses? Would the speed advantage no longer exist? Would using a SSM lens equal the in-camera AF motor speed? Or would it be faster?
Wondered. Love to hear from a A700 owner with a G series SSM lens.
And so far there's been no pre-PMA news regarding the rumored SSM CZ lenses. Yet. It is still early. Wonder if we'll see the rumored 14-24 f/2.8 SSM, 24-70 f/2.8 SSM and the 70-200 f/2.8 SSM. Has any one heard anything on the pricing?
