65 and counting: Was thinking about purchasing the Sony A600. Not sure now after reading reviews. I am wanting to shoot my children's sports pictures, basketball, soccer, and tennis. Can anyone recommend a good camera and lens for action photos.

Quick follow up to this -- it was operator error, aided and abetted a little bit by the factory. I took it out of the box, started shooting (without reading the manual) and hit this problem.

I worked through the menus and settings, but didn't see any obvious weirdnesses.

Doing some more research, I found this web page of recommended settings, and spotted the self-timer delay from the list: https://photographylife.com/recommended-sony-a6000-settings . Turned out the body was delivered with the self-timer ON and set to those couple seconds delay.

Self timer is OFF, all is good, and the focus is quick. Happy a6000 user.

I liked everything I read about the a6000, and was looking for a lighter carry camera than my Nikon kit, but on my second day trying it out, I was shooting a charity walk, and the lag between shutter press and snap was averaging about 3 seconds with the kit lens and the tele zoom. Just couldn't work with it for anything moving. Could have been me not having the settings right, but based on my experience it didn't work well for action.
