1/40 and f10 for a moving bike, why?

DSLR AF is superior for the most part, but it's still not going to do you any good at 1/40.

I realize that I could have just jacked up the shutter speed to improve focus, but I was trying to get a panning shot and a higher shutter speed would not give me the background I wanted. I used to get good shots even at 1/30 with my DSLR. I did try slightly higher shutter speeds, but it did not help much. Like I said, I need to practice a lot more with the Nex for these types of shots. But I am pretty sure it will never be close to a DSLR for panning. Of course, I knew that before I bought the Nex, so no big regrets. I just need more practice, and perhaps some good tips
