Arghh! Thought I would try my Nikon 35mm f1.8 G prime with my fotodiox adapter to NEX. All I could do was manual focus and unfortunately
the pups went crazy in the pre-Spring weather, making it almost impossible to get them to stay still long enough for focus peaking. Whites are blown out, but I had a lot of
fun running around, and from the looks of things, using a manual lens on the NEX sure is a great option

Not sure AF would've been much better on a small, fast moving subject. You might try zone focusing to see if that helps.

Cute dogs, what breed are they?

Same issue with grandkids. But at least once in a while they're in a stroller or high chair or something. Much easier to shoot when you fasten them in one place.
