    Hi Dan,
    You mention using af-c autofocus, but I also think it is particularly important to mention the af-c custom settings and use thereof. I shoot mostly runners, 5k etc, but some bikers, so am usually shooting a slower moving target. I find the custom settings particularly useful, especially being able to customize my own setting (6), which I usually do. Shooting Zone, smallest zone, I set the tracking sensitivity to 2, speed sensitivity to 1 or 2, but the customizable setting I find most important is the zone switching setting. For my style, I find using the Front setting for runners works very well, where in many shooting situations this may not work well. Point is, try customizing your settings for optimum results.
    I enjoy your X series ebook immensely (have read about 3 times), so thank you so much for always being willing to impart your knowledge and helping others.

    Hi Vern,

    Thanks for your comment. I do use the AF-C Custom Settings options on the X-T2 quite often. In my experience shooting action with subjects like cycling, trail running and flying birds, I find that settings #2 (Ignore Obstacles) and #4 (Suddenly Appearing Subject) seem to work best for me. I usually stick to the 5 stock presets but have occasionally played around with adjusting the Tracking and Speed Sensitivity and Zone Area Switching. Using these controls, you can really fine the AF system on the X Series cameras. Here’s a detailed primer on how all the AF-C Custom Settings options work.

    Thanks for buying my ebook, I’m glad it’s been good resource for you. 🙂
