    Hi all,
    I have heard that a6000 is very fast. Have you tried testing it in running children and birds flying? Have you shotted sports?
    Any images that you can share here?

    Regards

    Here're some pics I tested with A6000 + FE 55mm/1.8.
    This is the first time I shot sports, no experience whatsoever. I didn't even use the fastest 11fps; I used 6fps. I tried to shoot wide open to test focus accuracy but forgot to bring ND filter, so sometimes have to use f3.2+. If you used f4 or f5.6, you'll get even more in focus, sharper pics.

    AF-C, Wide area focus, Face Detection OFF.

    Success rate, is same as most reviewers said, about 60-70%. You'll get 5-7 good ones out of 11fps; and that's unheard of for the price point.

    A good review here:
