Not impossible, but is far from ideal. You can learn to deal with it, but for something where the movements can be erratic, I haven't found Sony AF to match Canon's or Nikon's top end yet. They CAN do the job, just not as well, and you will be working around the faults. It's a give and take, and it's why I'm going to be switching to a dual system of a D700 for action and event work, and a Sony A850 for fine art and portrait work.
