The D7100 did OK today
6 months ago

Like many others, I have been struggling with AF-C tracking on the D7100.  Not sure if it is the camera or my Sigma 120-300 OS Non sport with or without 2x TC.  When it is on, it is pretty darn good.  It missed so many times today.  Even on easy shots with BIF against a blue sky, it just misses by a lot and sometimes...  The D300 just always nailed these sequences, but the ISO performance is not even close to the D7100, so I keep plugging away.  I ended up using 21 pt. with lock on set to long. Set focus to release after "focus" just wasn't working. I stopped down quite a bit to get as much sharpness and DOF to get the Ospreys in focus.
