A7 can't do action (really?)
Jun 3, 2014

So the claim goes that the A7's AF is so slow it is only good for landscapes and still life.  I'd love for people to prove that wrong in this thread by posting your action photos (the thinner the DoF you're using the better, since it's more of a challenge for the AF).  Here's my entry:

First shot completely out of focus when my friend's kid suddenly cut across my frame:

Second shot when I realized I could try to catch her:

Shot at f2.0. Both have the exact same time stamp to the exact second, by the way. Eyelashes, fabric detail, etc. all are perfectly in focus.
