Re: how can the NEX auto-focus miss these shots?

After initial frustration with focusing on my NEX 5t (compared to DSLR, though DSLRs are also not to be trusted completely when it comes to focusing, though they are definitively faster) and help from forum members here are my advices:
1.Accept the fact that your camera is not too fast or correct with focusing.
2.Choose Flexible Spot (gives the smallest focusing area)
3.Use DMF to know where more-less the camera focuses on; remember, it's also contrast based, so it will show the color lines along areas with strong contrast, but they may not necessarily be in focus (at least this is my experience)

I still think it is very much about realizing NEX is not very fast or accurate at focusing, once you accept it you will be fine...:) In fact I'm learning manual focusing now, new and usefull skill; while for run and gun photography use P&S.

Goog luck!
