Probably about 3/4 of my shots came in focus. I suspect the bright lighting conditions allowed the camera to do a decent job of tracking the subject.

Edit. These were taken using shutter priority of at least 1/500 and the 40-150mm f4-5.6 kit lens. As you can see, to get that fast shutter the camera had to open the aperture and the DOF suffered somewhat but nevertheless you can still see the girl in the background well enough. I probably will use manual next time to control both shutter and aperture to see if I can get both. Never really tried full manual yet but the camera is fairly easy to use.

Thanks. If you take a couple hundred shots your bound to get a few keepers. Fortunately I had two very motivated subjects;a daughter who's been bugging me me for a dog and a dogwe rescued from a local shelter two weeks ago.

Love the third shot - that one's the winner.

Keep working at it - with more practice your keeper rate will go up. For what it's worth when shooting action in good light - make sure your subject fills at least haalf the frame - your focus sysytem will do a better job (as will your ability to keep a focus point on your subject).

and did I say I love that third shot?
