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.

It was an unexpected 1 second, if I didn't have eye AF I'd not have gotten it.

Oh and some people in this thread claimed that the A7III have issue with eye AF, I dunno, I shot 450 pics in this session and couldn't find any pic that didn't have the eye in focus, perhaps someone else is interested in looking for eye OOF pics? I can send the files to you.

Flash her as fast as you can and every photo, every smile will be different !

Upload all 450 of them.  No one will complain.
