Rapid AF response to capture decisive moments

Rapid AF response to capture decisive moments

The camera adopts Fast Intelligent AF featuring high-speed, highly accurate contrast-detection autofocus. Improved from the AF system used in a7 series, it achieves focus by minimising wasted lens motion, predicting AF range, and accelerating lens drive, thereby improving response so you can capture even more fleeting moments.
