some tips

Dear Mark,

Below are some tips from me.

1. Use the small AF points (press OK to reveal Super Control Panel, highlight the AF points options then press OK, press info, then press up/down until the AF points are small). Turn off face detection too.

2. Use fast EVF framerate (press menu, choose custom menu, choose display/PC, adjust the "frame rate" from normal to high. If the frame rate option text is in gray color and unselectable, you have to un assign any button that you assigned for "focus peaking".

3. Now select CAF

This I find would be the fastest CAF setting for me.
The performance will depends on the lenses too though.
