a77ii with tamron 70-200 2.8 macro


Does anyone have this exact combo?

How is the autofocus speed with new focus limiter function of a77ii.

I know that a99 has it too but not sure if there are any differences between screw drive motors so I'd rather hear from a77ii owners.

I have recently tested this lens with my a57 and I was astonished how sharp the images were across the focal length range. Focus speed was not bad for slow moving/correctly predicted objects. Unfortunately I had a real problem with getting my randomly moving son in focus...

Photos were not far off but not as sharp as I like them too be.

Does focus limiter make big change or is it negligible?

A77ii is a beast comparing to my trusty a57 and I fell in love when I had a chance to play with it. I might be upgrading soon.
