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.

I finally had a chance to test the new Nikon D6 auto focus tracking capabilities. I had my friend, a NCAA D1 cross country runner, perform a technical run through a random maze of tall weeds. This shot is from a sequence of photos of her run. As this shot shows (and all the rest of the shots in this sequence), the Nikon D6 tracked perfectly and never strayed off my intended subject. I will have much more to say in my comprehensive D6 review. I think the Nikon Z9 has its work cut out for it!
