    AF-C with A7RII and 70-200 FE works

    First, its been quite awhile since I tried doing action photography with fast moving subjects.
    I had a chance to go out to Autobahn Country Club Saturday. It's a country club for people with fast cars rather than a golf swing.

    Here is a shot to illustrate what I mean.

    It was shot with A7RII, 70-200 F4 FE, ISO 400, 1/125th at F8. The camera was set to AF-C and high speed burst. Lock-on AF: Flexible Spot M. Not every image is sharp. That's panning technique. Its apparent when looking at the images, even those that aren't sharp that the camera focused properly.

    This has got to be the ultimate Saturday afternoon drive in the country.

    Autofocus with the 70-200 FE was fantastic at a concert last night. Combined with the great high ISO dynamic range, it was killer (even from the cheap seats)

    Nice.
    People forget that with good stage lighting the ISO, shutter speed and F stop can be manageable.

    This one is from a backyard concert. DJ lighting and some PAR type spot bulbs on the ground pointing at them.

    ISO 2000 (Auto ISO) 1/60 with OSS on, F4 lens was at 132mm.

    This is a important setup for me with runway stuff in APC mode too. Glad to hear this
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    I always shoot in full frame mode. Then use cropping to enlarge subject and position for composition. Beats doing the in camera cropping, in my view.

    Art directors beat shoot loose into my brain when I was a young commercial photographer.
