Thanks, Mathew! AFS setting is Shutter Priority. In this setting the focus is set in the first frame and does not change to follow the target even to hold focus. Only to be used for a stationary target. It is stated in the specs to fire at a rate of 8.3 frames per second due to it's firing in "fixed focus." J
