So the 650D gets continuous autofocus in video mode but not in the 5Dmk3 I purchased a few months ago? Hmm.
So in short, new sensor, the sensor includes some pixels that are used for AF and not IQ.

Hmm.On thinking, despite my previous comment would a 5D3 owner want it.Last time I used camcorder with this function the AF was never really consistent, not like follow focus.
ok...so the press release isn't clear...Can you use Auto Focus for video ONLY if you use an STM lens?Does that mean my $1200 24-105 L lens is no good for video?
Can somebody clarify if the new "Hybrid CMOS" AF is in fact a combination of PDAF and CDAF like the Nikon 1 sensor or something different?
I'm going to hold out for the 40mm pancake f/2.8 L.
The 1DX has been delayed so this video feature can be added
Now a better question is how those pixels would show up in the RAW files ... or rather, how they won't show up.
