There are people who actually think LENS stabilization is better than sensor shifting!

Last night I played a little bit with the settings on a77II.

The two main thinks you have to pay attention are the
1st
-AF priority
-Release priority
-Balance emphasis

2nd
-AF track duration (1 low~5 high)

Before I checked this parameters I was using AF priority & AF track duration 5 high

Now I have tested I am still using the AF priority and track duration 5 high but something new I found is you can memorise in memory recall M1/2/3 even these changes.

So instead going through menu to change parameters you can have these setting in memory recall

For some birds in fly I may try AF track duration 1 or 2 since I sometimes get he wings sharp
and the body is out of focus.

In summary
AF priority always and AF tracking duration in M1 1 (Low) M2 3(mid) M3 5(high)
