In reply to bill hansen, Apr 1, 2013

I tried to shoot a college baseball and lacrosse games, and my active son, and it is possible to get sharp images with this setup, but the keepers rate is low. I got the best results when I shoot in drive mode, continuous AF, and with a PDAF compatible lens (the SEL55-210). And you need some efforts from your side, by trying to predict where to prefocus. I always think that photographers always succeeded in getting sharp pictures before AF was even invented, so there's  surely a way with a limited capability AF of the NEX-6

But for sure that current technology in DSLR have spoiled us, especially when I look at what pro-DSLR are capable of doing.
