Sony A6000 Shooter’s Report Part II: Focusing on a world in motion

From the desk of Eamon Hickey:

"The headline news on the Sony A6000 is its claimed improvements in continuous AF (AF-C) on moving subjects. To test those claims, I've shot almost 2,500 photos in more than 150 burst sequences of flying birds, dogs at play, soccer, flag football, sprinters, joggers, and bicyclists in light ranging from bright daylight to dark overcast. I happen to also be reviewing the Nikon D4S, which I shot side-by-side with the A6000 as a kind of benchmark to measure it against. On the spec sheet, they both claim to be able to do continuous follow focus at 11 frames per second."

Eamon's results are just a click away in his A6000 Shooter's Report Part II.

Does the Sony A6000 live up to all the continuous autofocus hype?
Eamon Hickey's A6000 Shooter's Report Part II covers this in 1/1000s detail.
