A6000 + Zeiss Touit 1.8/32 and Sonnar 1.8/55 (model shoot pics)

Finally got some nice weather here and did a photoshoot by the lake. Took some fitness shots too including some with the model running fast towards me. I've prepared for the latter as I even had it pre-programmed under one of my memory settings. My settings are: AF-C, high bursts, f/2.2 aperture using flexible spot center point right on model's middle section, AF tracking on. I'm happy with the results considering that I had zero success when I tried this with the NEX-6 prior to the latest firmware upgrade. I still got a few out of focus shots but definitely not bad for a mirrorless camera. It's nowhere close to the performance of my Canon 1DMKIII but then again it is less bulkier than the Canon.

Having said the above, overall, I am ecstatic about how fast the A6000 focuses. Unless I plan to shoot sports again, I am considering trading off the rest of my DSLR equipment. More or less I've replicated my Canon DSLR gear with little compromise at a smaller package to boot! I'm just waiting for that Zeiss 85/1.8 to complete my lens lineup.

Here are the ones I have processed so far:


As always, I welcome all comments.
