Hi All,

Need help with the group, I am not getting Sharp images from my Canon 5DM4 , things were fine and I had super sharp images wide open. Unsure if something happened to the camera/setup.
I am getting way too many missed shots.

1) I never use AI Focus, that is one change I would make. AI Servo is the mode to use.

2) Are you using a filter on the lens that you haven't in the past?

3) Have you micro adjusted your lens? The first photo shows back focusing, however AI Focus could be blamed as well.

Thank you for the response TeamSpeed,

1) Will try AI Servo next time onwards. What would be the Metering mode/focus point grouping (9 point, single point etc that you might use for a shot like this)
2) No new filter etc, same setup as everytime. :(

I would use single point personally. I would use center weighted, and auto ISO with EC +1/3 in manual mode. I would also have made sure my lens was micro adjusted befoerhand.

I think it looks like you are using zone AF, and in the second image, the camera found the bracelets on her right arm to focus on.
