How responsive is the HM100 autofocus when shooting 24P?

And then, same question when shooting 60P.

I tired out the camera today at a local shop.
The autofocus is good, but it does take about a second to get good focus. It seems just a tad bit slower than my Canon HV20.

I donīt find it to be very responsive in either mode. The AF performance is certainly one of the weak points of he camera. And unfortunately the focus assistant for MF focussing doesnīt work as well as I hoped either...
