Re: Tracking subject lock on with Sony A 99 II

Now here goes the first part of a reply to gussmann but which actually should be here.

********

Hi,

owning myself an A99II and the 70-400 (though Mk1) and doing along the last years pretty frequently action/sport with this combo (as well as with the 70-200, and the Sigma HSM 24-70 and 12-24) I've never felt very confident with the cam's tracking AF. For slower moves approaching the cam like runners, yes, it keeps track, best when shooting in short bursts, but for example upcoming bicycle, well, simply too many shots OOF. I got better rate in AF-C (only, w/o tracking) and moving the cam to have the subject where the AF area was set (zone or expanded flexible).
