Mirrorless tech question
3

There is a lot of experienced photographers and technical people on this forum.  Can anyone explain in layman terms why it is that previous generation Nikon dSLRs are generally known to be better for tracking AF?. Is this in dynamic area modes or 3d tracking or both? Why is it that more af points directly on the mirrorless sensor have trouble? Is it a hardware issue? I would think that if the dSLR tracking algorithms were solid then programming shouldn't be a hold back. To me having a separate af sensor seems like it would be more difficult to get right rather than the other way around. I did do a quick Google search on this before asking here.
