A77: Focusing on subject walking towards you.
Dec 28, 2012

Quick question:

I can't seem to find a setting that can focus on one of my toddlers walking towards me.  S, A modes don't get it right.  I don't use C very often, because I can't grab focus and re-frame, maybe it would help in this senario?  In S and A, it grabs focus, then by the time it shutters, it's lost.  Seems like the camera should be faster than that.

Using SAL35F18 mostly, and sometimes a Minolta 50mm  F/1.4.  I want to blame the old lens, but the 35 does it too.

Anything mode or setting I might be missing?
