Panasonic has made major developments in contrast-detection AF recently, with superfast systems found in the Lumix DMC-G2, GH2 and G3. The NEX-C3’s AF is not as fast, although it does appear to be an improvement on earlier NEX models.

For portraits and candid shots, the NEX-C3 is fast enough to cope with small to moderate movements, but to capture faster subjects successfully will take careful prefocusing and a pinch of luck.

When there is time to take an image, the manual focusing magnification and new peaking features make it easy to get the sharpest possible focus.
