    Took the kids to the park today. The swing shots are with the 18-105mm. Did pretty well on swing motion, but certainly not a high hit rate (about 15-20%), which isn't terrible for swings, since most any camera falls on its face with tracking swing motion because it's very close, erratic and accelerates and decelerates rapidly. This makes two cameras (X-T1) that I have that can actually do a passable job on swing shots.

    The other shots are with the Sigma 60.

    Jordan, the first 3 shots on the swings are with the 18-105mm...correct?
    The last 2 are with the Sigma 60mm?

    Nice shots. The a6000 is miles ahead of my 5t with AF. Only way I get those hit percentages is to have large DOF and move with the subject.
