PhotoRumors guy is reporting the next Sony a99 will have 102 autofocus points. This got me thinking – are we getting into overkill here?
Granted, it's not even been released yet, so there is no way to know just how good or bad the autofocus will be. But, I have to wonder if we are getting to the point of diminishing returns here. Are 102 autofocus points better than 61 points?
Is this the next form of megapixel wars? "Your 1DX has a mere 61 autofocus points while we have 102."
Realistically, how many autofocus points can be crammed into the space and do they, at some point, begin to make the focusing worse, not better.
Just something I'd like to hear opinions on from those who understand this sort of thing more than I do.
