A clearly front focused soft 1.8mp photo.

Good examples. The cat is not exactly running though...

Nice but the cat is almost asleep.

Those are good but #2 looks front-focused. Hard to say at 1.1mp. No running cats or dogs though.

Finally a running animal. #1 is exactly what we are talking about and it seems that the focus has been nailed. #2 is questionable, and again, 1.1mp.

The running dog looks like a use case.  But unless it has odd framing, where the focus point had to dart around the frame, faster than a human could move it, normal methods of catching the running dog in focus would work fine.  Put the AF point on the dog and fire once or continuous?

Asking if Sony's animal eye focus is just a gimmick means they want the right answers and opinions only?
