Re: Not as good as my trusty Canon DSLR, but good enough?

I may finally have an opportunity to photograph at a (indoor) basketball game in a few weeks. I plan on using my NEX-3 and a big white Minolta lens from 1989, of course via EA2, and will surely post images here. I will also try to take a few images with manual focus via tracking (using Focus Peaking), although the 200G HS is a horrible choice with manual focus. I will miss the 6/10 FPS burst modes of the A55 that I may still carry with me but with the 16-50/2.8 on it.
