Nikon D6, 200-500mm Nikkor Lens

In my prior blog post, I posted the results using the Nikon D6’s continuous auto focus while tracking a NCAA division one runner sprinting through tall weeds. In that situation, continuous AF performed very well.

This time, I wanted to see how the D6 tracked a group of Autocross cars racing straight-on towards me using Nikon's 3D auto focus option.  For these photos, I took screen shots with the AF focus points turned on as shown in Nikon NX Studio. Out of all of the sequences for each car, I didn’t notice any that were out of focus. The Nikon D6 was able to track the vehicles coming straight on at high speeds. I was impressed. All photos taken with the Nikkor 200-500mm 5.6 lens. More to come with my full Nikon D6 review.
