Disappointed with AF-C in A6000 w. SEL 18-55
2 months ago

I was at a falconry show last weekend with my A6000 and the old silver SEL 18-55mm kit lens. Since the 18-55mm is a good performer as compared with SEL PZ 16-50 in terms of border sharpness and distortion, I decided to use it to check the AF-C burst mode. My settings were: AF-C (wide focus zone), MID burst speed, Shutter-priority mode, 1/1000 s, aprox. 44mm, pre-AF off. None of my shots were focused and I tried several times. It works better with distant subjects, but I think it is because f-values are higher (more DoF).

I think next time I will use the newer SEL PZ 16-50mm to see if it performs better!
