Hi all

Now only sony's has animal eye AF. Does it just gimmick ?

For Canon and Nikon without animal eye AF does it hard to shot dog or cat ?


It sounds like it would be a handy feature.  I don't seem to need it much but maybe if other parts of the animal were closer (wet nose?) and capturing the camera's attention when eye detect isn't used.  My animals are too fuzzy for the camera to focus on anything other than their eye anyway.

Would it make framing, and reframing, faster since you don't have to move af point around manually?
