For me A6000 + 55-210 not good for action

I admit I am not the best at this stuff so this may not apply to you.  I set the A6000 up with all the proper settings recommended here and switched it to AF-C.  The little PDAF focus boxes which I like were constantly showing what should be in focus.  Much of the time they were wrong.  Here is what happened.

This should have been easy.  I pre-focused on home plate, but more than half the images would go wildly out of focus.  Here you can see it out of focus - in focus - back out of focus.

Here is another example.  It starts out in focus - next are out of focus.

I tried everything I could all morning and the same thing happened over and over.  Maybe it is something unique to this camera. Maybe you will get better results.  I can only say that after 2 hours of trying I could never get continuous good results.  I also learned that after a burst the camera would be unable and say "writing to memory card".  It is a new card and one of the fastest I could find so I can't blame the card.

I wish everyone better luck.  Mine is going back.
