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 !!

And they will take an eternity to acquire focus in that mode, much less track... only SLTs can. This is a fact, not a biased opinion.
