Will, or can, Sony ever add Real Time Tracking to the A7RIII ?
1

I own both the A7R3 and the A6400. I use, and enjoy, both cameras ... the little A6400 when I want a small and lightweight carry camera, and the larger A7R3 for most other situations.

I find the Real Time AF on the A6400 a generally quicker and easier system to use compared to the Lock On tracking used with the A7R3. Both work fine, but Real Time just seems to be the more flexible of the two. Also, eye focus does not require a separate button press to activate it.

So, why can’t Sony offer a firmware update that replaces Lock On with Real Time tracking? I don’t think the 42mp sensor would be a limiting factor, so why not?
