thanks for the inputs,

I ended up getting rid of the 3 as I didn't really need it and I preferred the small form factor and snappy af on the 1n.
is it really smaller? i never handled a 1n, but always thought they are similar in size.

It ONLY has 5 af zones but is quite accurate and snappy.
never mind only five, i would be happy with one

Biased, aint I!?
and you should be

so i guess there's little difference between the two camera, and there's no dealer i can got to test all the screens, it's very rare for camera store here nowadays to stock that kind of things.
