Me too. I never really went beyond case 1 with my 5D3 but I never used it for tracking. Used my 7D and 7D2 for that. Now I use them with my 5D4. My two favourties are 2 and 6 and about the same ratio you use.

I used Case 2 for a while, then started to wonder why. Maybe because 1 was default, so 2 means you are doing something more important. Anyway, after a while went back to 1 and never really noticed a difference. I'm not saying there wasn't a difference, just that I didn't notice.

Based on my tests you get about a .5 second delay with TS at -1 and about a second at -2. The difference is how many in focus shots you get if you lose the target shooting at 10fps.

Also the delay time before it starts to look for something else to focus on if you target becomes obstructed. That one is harder to judge as you would need controlled conditions. I just trust it to help me track in those conditions.

Have you tried “taping the pins” so the other af points are activated?

Cool shots, Lester. They are neat little spiders.

My 100-400 II required hardly any adjustment with my 7D2. A value of 2 or 3 is practically nothing.

With the 1.4X III it was a different story - I needed around +12 at the long end.

Every time I do the adjustment the result is a bit different. But a couple of points one way or the other don't make a noticeable difference.

You might want to ask again in one of the 100-400mm II threads to get more opinions.

As a reference, each point of MFA is about 1/8 of the depth of field.

Nice! I have one shot of one of those spiders, with my 7D2 and I believe the 100mm IS. In looking them up online, I read that they will see themselves in the lens reflection, sometimes jumping at it! Last pic I took of one lol!!

What is it that birds are not afraid of little girls? Birds were not afraid of my daughter either, so I used her to get some shots:twisted:.
