With everyone trying to claim the crown for fastest AF, one would think that they would use as many optimizations as possible, especially one as simple as providing the best contrast output to the AF system.

    It all comes down to cost & to have another processor (I guess it would need that for this use) adds cost as well as being something else to fit into the space inside.

    I must try this on my G3, although it focusses fine in S-AF anyway and I don't use C-AF very often.

    It would be interesting to know if the G3 behaves the same way.

    Is focus by contrast detection via the image from the sensor?...if it is after the jpeg engine has rendered the image....
