On Manhattan Rain in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (7 comments in total)

Did you entered two very similar photos under different names and one got DQ'd? I like them both, but wondered what the heck was going on.

Congrats on the win.

In reply to:

According to the Sony Homepage your cross sensors are in the worng places:

http://www.sony.net/Products/di/en-gb/products/g2sw/feature.html?contentsTop=1

Yes. The points on the Sony page make more sense and cover a little bigger range too. However, I'm not sure they cover as much area as the prior set of x-type points on the original A-77. Shooting larger animals, I tend to use the x-type points near the corners of the array on the original A-77. This is now not an option on the A-77 II :(
