Somewhere in Canon's documentation they specifically point out that the initial acqusition isn't affected by this setting.

I forgot to say this is associated with Case 3. Early on I had read on a few forums that people used it because it focuses faster. Yes from one subject to another but not initial AF focus. The 7D2 AF guide shows an image of a hawk entering the scene. AF did not start with the bird entering. In that scene the system would have had the background in focus first. Canon says between two subjects and I guess there only being one bird in that example might have thrown someone off. I decided to test it myself and got the results I expected.

Based on some of the discussions I am going to try out Case 4 and maybe bump the parameters. Unless I'm in zone I'm usually in Case 2 for precise tracking. The gulls I normally practice on get a little erratic but they are gone. I don't shoot enough sports but I wish I did. Gonna shoot a friends hockey hockey game but like me those guys out there aren't spring chickens.
