Does the camera continue to adjust the focus while shooting in Continuous Shooting mode?

Shooting in Continuous Shooting mode

    By setting the auto focus mode to AF-A or AF-C and using a Fast Hybrid AF compatible lens, the camera continues to adjust the focus during Continuous Shooting.
    When using a Fast Hybrid AF incompatible lens, the camera continues to adjust the focus only if Continuous Shooting is set to Lo.

    Even when using a Fast Hybrid AF compatible lens, the camera does not continue to adjust the focus when Continuous Shooting is set to Mid/Hi in the following situations

    • When the subject is not inside the Phase Detection AF Area
    • When it is dark
    • When the aperture value is greater than F11

    NOTE:
    When shooting using a mount adaptor, pay attention to the following points

    • The camera does not continue to adjust the focus when Continuous Shooting is set to Mid/Hi.
    • The camera continues to adjust the focus when Continuous Shooting is set to Lo only if an LA-EA2 or LA-EA4 Mount Adaptor is used.
