Re: AF of 1D X III and A9 II for sports


With the A9 II the battery is different vs the A9, the body ergonomics are a tad better for gripping and there is a lock button I believe on the exposure compensation dial which comes in handy if hanging off of a strap where it could accidentally get moved. As mentioned above, no difference in AF. The Sony tracking using just a focal point (face & eye turned off) is very good and does the job when shooting sports where you want the target positioned a certain way within the frame. I use this mode when the target is relatively unobstructed from other soccer players i.e. works good with one-on-one battles for possession but revert back to the standard focal point (no tracking) in most other situations. Having shot soccer for more than 20 years I found the face & eye tracking somewhat problematic due to the nature of this sport. However, it does work great for other sports like tennis, baseball, golf etc...
