Focus is not locked...try this
In reply to neil holmes, May 14, 2014

I just went outside (still early) and shot off about a hundred frames.

It tracked a couple of cars coming toward me ok.

I then panned around fairly quickly not focusing on anything in particular....and a lot of different depth to the object being focused on.....the camera would grab focus, then a few frames would go out of focus, then it would grab focus again ETC....keeping my finger on the button all the time.

The focus was not keeping up that much but it is still focusing in speed priority mode....and this is not how I would ever use tracking AF and I am not sure if many cameras would be all that great at.

Reviews seem to indicate it is focusing and I think it is...not fast enough for many subjects but fine for a lot.....one review said ok for a galloping horse I think.
