Dpreview posted their hands-on review of the Powershot G7 X. An excerpt:
As far as autofocus is concerned, the G7 X features a 31-point contrast-detection AF system (not hybrid). We’ve only used a pre-production sample but our initial impressions of focus speed are very positive. No doubt the tendency to focus with the lens’ aperture wide open – regardless of the shooting aperture – keeps AF working fast and reliably, even in lower light.
