Re: Impossible?

Regarding the shot you claim was impossible without Eye AF:

  • Most of your shots have her head in the same general area of the frame, so your AF point would have already been there.
  • At the distances you were working focus/recompose would have absolutely worked.
  • In that shot the face and chest are both in focus. So even leaving the AF point near the center would have worked in this case.

I don't doubt that eye AF is useful. But I do hate hyperbole. People have been nailing unexpected "model relaxing" shots since before AF.

Side note: all the shots are nice, so I hate to make this critique, but...I can't stand Sony's color science. Sony color is simply a "film" I can't get used to.

F1.8 is tricky.

I don't like Sony colors either.   Cause I am used to Canon colors I guess.

Back in the day I thought Sony TV picture tubes had the nicest color.
