About autofocus during continuous shooting

Although the camera tracks the subject in focus regardless of the settings for continuous shooting, the function behaves as follows in some cases.

  • The focus is locked to the setting in the first shot when the F-value is greater than F22.
  • When shooting with [Continuous Shooting: Hi+] or [Continuous Shooting: Hi], the continuous shooting speed varies according to the focus mode setting as follows.
    • [Single-shot AF]/[DMF]/[Manual Focus]: The same speed as when an E-mount lens is attached (The focus is locked to the setting in the first shot.)
    • [Continuous AF]: Maximum of 10 images per second
