2nd shot is out of focus.

One thing you should really try to take advantage of mirrorless is to shoot extremely low, place the camera low and tilt the LCD up, etc. It will make it so the contrasty grass does not confuse the camera *and* likely make your shots far more interesting as a picture full of contrasty grass is pretty boring too.

This is an advantage you don't get with DSLR unless you lay prone in the grass btw.

plenty of DSLRs have fully articulated LCDs now - no need to be so overtly biased !!

Only the Sony DSLT's will perform PDAF well in this situation and maybe the 70D *might* get a sharp shot or two.  The rest you need to lay prone and keep your eyes on the viewfinder to utilize PDAF.
