The weekend my Z 6ii with the 24-70 f4 didn’t even recognize my dad’s head from about 6’ away, let alone his eyes, in any of the people modes. Same with my daughter from about 10’ until I had her stay really still. I also tried to use the white tracking box on a slow moving pontoon boat and every time it latched onto the shoreline beyond the boat instead of the boat. As has been mentioned before by others, it would be extremely beneficial to be able to shrink the white tracking box. As it stands after firmware 1.2, single point and dynamic are still the only autofocus modes I have any confidence in.

Were they wearing masks? Masks will throw off the face/eye detection.
