Animal eye AF in low light worked perfectly tonight
8

I shot this beauty under very bad conditions, backlight, cats face was totally dark (I lifted up the shadows in post, I could not see the eyes on the evf myself when I shot her) and it was pretty dark outside. Only inside the store was bright.

I probably shot 70 frames in different bursts, 40% of them have the eyes in perfect focus, which is enough for these conditions I think. I got lots of keepers. I don't think I could have nailed focus with my D850 under these conditions since I couldn't see the eyes at all and she was constantly moving.
