try indoor dancing gigs, you will be surprised how much evf lacked in that environment, and the sony AF engine, manual focus will deliver more than afc.

Well, I do use MF quite a bit. But, here is AF-C while panning thru EVF under relatively low light (brightness value of just 1), and the horse was going full throttle (the drum marks the middle of the arena).

I haven't had many opportunities to shoot dances (as most won't allow photography) but I will pull up my A55 for stage performances like this...

But of course, AF-C was unnecessary in this case.
