The autofocus works really well, at least on moving subjects that aren't racing through the frame, and the high ISO-sensitivity photos look good at smallish sizes.
You don't really need to use continuous shooting for this type of action. This photo and the next were single shots. The autofocus system locked fast enough to get them, though.
Curious where all that "hands-on" coverage comes from? This the type of event where we get to shoot with the cameras.
