Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II review – Autofocus

No changes have been made to the AF system for the RX100 II. In good light, focus is very snappy, and while it is a little slower in low-light situations, it still focuses accurately and at a decent speed.

Focus tracking is impressively accurate, allowing me to lock onto flowers that were swaying in the wind; I was able to select my focus point, frame the shot and wait for the optimum time to take the picture. On top of this, manual focusing is possible using the lens ring, and focus peaking aids accuracy.
