Honestly, that video mostly shows the serious weaknesses of contrast-detection AF. The camera is slow to focus and frequently inaccurate. Until that technology is better, phase detection or manual is where it's at.

Not sure that this is really better though.
I had swap my GH2 out for a new one(Defective unit). I ended up getting the 14-140mm lens that Panasonic claims offers the fastest autofocus of any "Light" based AF. I will do some tests with that lens and see how it does.

Also remember that the video was without any additional lighting. Take your camcorder in a gym some time and try to film. My guess is that it won't look so hot either.

I wonder if low light affects the Sony AF at all. I haven't seen any low light samples yet.
