Its an informative video, also the book is good, but my take is a bit different, and will likely be unpopular.  I can only comment on the Sony a77 M2 and the A6000 focus modes as I have not worked with other cameras.  It would not surprise me if the other makes suffer from the same shortfalls.  All these focus modes are all just based on best guesses.  This very evident in the AF mode expand spot where the focus squares just dance around the screen.  This may get you an "OK" shot in a pinch which is probably OK for a family album, but it will not get you that quality sharpness - unless you get lucky.  So it is possible to use the machine gun approach:  most shots will miss but I shoot so many that maybe at least 1 or 2 hit.  I used the 35mm SAM on the A77ii and the 24mm Zeiss on the a6000.  On both kits the only satisfactory results are using DMF.  Because "good enough" really is not.

Sons of Anarchy sucks.  i have been robbed!  I bought the entire 7th season but i cant watch episode 3 due to an authentication error.  do not buy it here unless you like throwing away money with no hope of getting it fixed or getting your money back.

A new addition to my lens collection is my 35mm F1.8 SAM DT lens.  Here it is attached to my A77 M2 camera.  It is an APSC lens which makes it close to an equivalent of a 50mm lens.  It is a nifty little performer, very reasonably priced.

Another new lens, this one attached to my Sony a6000, the second Zeiss I ever owned, it is the 24mmF1.8.  This is a beaut!  It is an APSC lens so it should be an equivalent of close to 35mm full frame.
