The A99 flash system is causing AF problems for me with action shots.

I'd appreciate some thoughts on this.

I commented over there Dennis.  I'm wondering if your camera is set to AF priority or Shot priority.   See if your timing improves with AF set to Shot priority.

I have tried that in the past with dismal results with the A990 or the A99. The DOF is very shallow and I don't want the camera to fire unless focus is acquired. I had good results with the A900 but the A99 while accurate without flash seems to stall long enough for the subject to move out of focus. Setting the FEL with the custom button helps. The A99 just seems sluggish compared to the A900.

Cheers,
