NEX CDAF is not bad and even usable for...(more)

BIFs. Using the entry level/discontinued NEX F3 and even with teleconverter in front, could still do usable BIFs. CDAF is a bit PITA but doable with practice and persistent. I do free style 100% handholding BIF - camera/lens down until a BIF prospect comes in then aim, track, hold/track and shutter release. Although I am only getting about 10-20% usable BIFs from the NEX F3 (compared to about 90% from my A700/A77), the difficulty and the fun part is more than 100%.

I am sure the Fuji is a good and fun cam but I am already having fun with the lowly NEX F3. Nothing to be envious about.
