I tried the Z6 eye AF with FW 3.0 vs my Sony A7III eye AF. I like Sony's eye AF a bit more since you can activate it on the fly with a button press and deactivate it as well. Plus it works with all AF focus modes. With Nikon eye AF you have to switch to auto area AF in order to use it. Saying that, I found Nikon's implementation accurate and I would have no issue using it when needed.
Interesting. Focus tracking seems much improved, but initial lock on still struggles for BIF.Steve Perry has finally released his take on 3.0:
I’ve found that the tracking is ok if the subject is large within the frame. I think the tracking box is too big to accurately track smaller subjects (at least that’s what I’ve found).Interesting. Focus tracking seems much improved, but initial lock on still struggles for BIF.
There are improvements to the Z AF! i.e. tracking and face eye detection!
I’m basing it on information available to me from various sources and to my own observations albeit amateur in nature and that AFS seems a bit snappier!What do you base your comment on?
Some are claiming that the hit rate on AF-C has improved, but Nikon has not said that it did any work on it for 3.0 and many reviewers do not mention any improvements in AF-C.
I was happy with AF performance before 3.0 and do not see improvements with 3.0.
