Nice M. :lol:

I had to laugh when you posted that. My M needs detailing before I can shoot it with the new 5D3, but I'm so preoccupied shooting other things with the 5D3 I don't know when I'll get around to detailing the M. Catch 22.

...the 5D2 version is in my avatar. :D

@ greekcs, is that a CSL?

John, M is for driving, not for showing, just get in and drive!

Moment of confusion switch between 5D2 / 5D3...

I have gotten more than a few e-mails asking why I switched from a 1DIV to the 5DIII. Well, it's just a lot more fun to use!

Beautiful shot of your daughter! But in response to your AF issues, I am using "case 2" with tracking sensitivity set to -2. I am having incredible success rates with everything from fast moving sports such as kayaking to fast moving kids to fast moving dogs running right at me. My keeper rate is well over 90%. Way better than other SLR's I have used...

Thank YOU for your tip, Idsurfer! I'd give it a try right away!

I believe I figured out a couple of my mistakes. First I'd shoot in AI Servo with a single Spot point activated, which according to the AF Guide (http://downloads.canon​.com …EOS_1DX_AF_Guid​e_CDLC.pdf (external link)) is not advisable, cause "it is not really suited to capturing fast moving subjects when set to AI Servo AF and may take longer to focus than other AF area selection modes." (p.29). And second - I believe I need some MA with my 85L II.

Also I changed my settings to focus priority, sacrificing the speed -I'd rather have half a dozen beautifully focused than a dozen of so-so images...

Good thoughts...I believe the single point spot will probably miss more often die to the fact that the focus area is so narrow. I use either single point or one of the expanded modes. I also have my priorities set for focus. I'm with you, I would rather have a couple perfect shots than a ton of missed focused shots!
