Morgan, see here:
Fourth post down: "Interchangeable Lens mounts including focus and iris control of electronic RED, Canon and Nikon lenses (along with Zoom data)."
Focus and Iris control
I read that to mean that one can control the lens from the body/red mote
Meaning you can drive the lens in the same way one could with a Radio Remote FollowFocus for example
ie 'fly by wire' manual focus
While this is amazingly useful technology especially for mounting the camera on a jib etc it is as I read it
not the same as auto focus by a long shot
Proper AF the camera can put a subject in focus and keep it there
what (quoting from the same post) "“Touch Focus Tracking” with electronic lens mounts and RED Touchscreen LCDs" means - I dont know
the only evidence I can find for AF is - grahams posts here and the screen shot of the monitor that appears to have focus zones..
of course the zones are too close together but that is only as bad as current DSLRs
