Do you just check those three settings, or all of them, and only adjust those three. Getting to that DOF will be new, I haven't ever used it for anything other than DOF; but actually haven't used it for that much! The is amazing!
I check them all down the left and then customize the setup on the right exactly how I want depending on the camera - my 5DSR is different than the 7D2 - as an example the 7D2 I use this to turn the speed and tracking upto more max levels and for the 5DSR I care about more about focus
If you have a normal sized adult hand, not small lady hand, then the right ring finger is just perfect on the DoF button - I actually rest my finger on it all the time - it has become the way I hold the camera.
Once you have the camera set up this way: (One Shot, AI Servo, AI Servo steroids) or (AI Servo 1 Bird, AI Servo mini explosion, AI Servo give me all you got), you feel so much more in command and you realize why Sony and the A7Rii (I own one) is not there yet in terms of being a great tool - it takes amazing pictures however.
Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.
