Focus limiter - with action photo

Although the focus range limiter seems useful in theory, I find in a run&gun situation you probably won't have time to set that up anyway.

I use the focus limiter a lot, and it is a wonderful feature for action photography, no matter if I am using the Zeiss 85 mm, G 70-200 mm or G 70-400 mm lens.

Setting up the focus limiter in the middle of a hot action scene is just nonsene. You have to configure the camera BEFORE you start shooting, including setting a decent focus limiter range.

The picture below is taken with the A99 and Zeiss 85 mm f:1.4 lens. For this scene the focus limiter was extremely helpful.
