The wind was really howling today also. Gusts of 40 to 50 mph not uncommon. As you can see from the big dust cloud, the wind was really kicking it around. I know the first photo is with the 1D lln but wanted to add it to the other photo to show the wind

You know it has got to add to some excitement for the pilots of these birds when they come down almost sideways to the strip and at the last second, straighten it up.......

How do most of you have your tracking sensitivity set? If you don't mind me asking. Thanks

Football one click slower than normal to allow players to cross at pace, rugby and cricket normal ringside one click faster

On my 1DIIN I had tracking sensitivity set to moderately slow, but on the 1DIII that doesn't seem to work as well as that setting makes the AF rather sluggish. I now have it set between middle and fastest and that works best for me. Yes, it does mean it may lose focus a bit easier when something comes between the camera and my subject, but at least if I do point the lens at something and focus, it will immediately do so instead of not wanting to refocus on the new subject because it thinks it has to keep focus where it was.

I found this to be a wonderful starting point for AI Servo settings:

The first Spring like day here so I decided to go to the country side looking for birds. The air was hazy though and not clear at all and the birds were skittish and too far away. Only managed to get reasonably close to some Godwits and came home with a few half decent shots. Here's one that I like.

Thanks everyone for the reply and the pdf.

I have an air show coming up in two weeks Lord willing. So I decided to go to the airport and try the lln and the lll on moving targets as the fastest I have tried them on yet were geese and such. The lln I took 300 shots and only had to discard two.

The lll was a totally different story. Out of 300 I got rid of about half. not all due to focus. A lot were composition , photobomb and such. But there were quite a few I had to get rid of.

The lln is set one bar below half.
The lll is set to full sensitivity.

So this is why I am asking. I will slow the sensitivity down a little and give her another try.

Thanks all

PeteD, if you're missing focus on something as big as a plane from a quarter mile away I cant see tracking sensitivity being the culprit...

Just trying to run down ideas. It is not in the affected number range. And, works good on birds, race cars and such.
