    In 80% of cases the camera nails the focus instantly without hunting.

    I must live in the 20 remaining %, lol...

    Your grand-daughter is gorgeous !!
    I must be cursed with poorly AFing NEX bodies because I'm on my third unit (5N, 6 and 7) and none have lived up to my AF expectations. I tried AGAIN the 6 with updated 18-55 this morning and the AF was average at best.

    nianys. I love that word "AFing"! :D I'm going to be using that.

    On the subject of "AFing", I had an interesting day today. I went out to shoot some stock with my 5N and Sigma 30 and the X PRO 1 with 60mm.

    As always the 5N/Sigma AF'd perfectly, not blazingly fast, but consistently accurate and returned 100% users. The XP1 on the other hand, and as usual, did not!
    Approximately 10% users.

    In another thread I asked, should I buy an NEX 6 and why?
    I concluded that perhaps I was better off just sticking to the 5N. I am now questioning this decision, as I have pretty much had a gut full of this "AFing" X PRO 1 letting me down!!!!!!

    I find all three NEX bodies that I tried pretty consistent for AF. Consistently... Lazy, that is. I probably have higher expectations than most folks for AF. But to me a cam that misses shots because the AF is too slow to lock is just that... Slow.
    No doubt that my 6 seems very accurate.
