What's the deal with autofocus with Canon G7X Mark III ??

This autofocus is horrible, any idea when this autofocus will be handled?  Surprised this camera hasn't gotten a good autofocus firmware update yet.    :(

It's been a problem since the camera came out.  You are better off going with the G7X Mark II.

Wasn't there a recent firmware update?   You should check.

I almost bought this camera!  I have no idea about the autofocus issue, I was told you want something with a interchangeable lens.

You do not need an interchangeable-lens unit for good, accurate and fast focus.  I run Panasonic fixed-lens superzooms (bridge camera if you prefer) and their focus speed and accuracy is magic

However, I have had a Fuji in the past whose focus issues were horrible ... a design fault more than a manufacturing fault
