I do a lot of running photography with my big heavy Canon system and it's great for that.

This weekend I'm going to Budapest as my daughter is running in a big championship.

It would suit me much more to bring my nex-7 with me. I've a newly acquired 50mm f1.8 for it.

Has anyone identified settings which suit this kind of photography with the Nex-7??

With the Canon I can get about 80% of shots in sharp focus..

YOu can make this work if you know how to use manual focus and stop down to f8 or lower. you'll need to figure out what area you want in focus and then manually dial that in and lock it.

Don't auto anything.
