Couple from the Sacramento Zoo from last August. It takes me forever to edit my photos.

Coming back to Mark's cycle shots: Sometimes people have really funny faces when doing sports!

Maybe it's just up to a multiple world champion like Tove Alexandersson to look like it's just for fun. Still she outran everybody else by minutes every day.

If its any help, I've been using the 1dx and 1dx mkii for a number of years now. Only ever use Case 2 and 4 for sports with single AF point or group of 4 if necessary. AF tracking is generally very consistent even in flat light which is basically all the time here during winter months. Most of my media colleagues use the same Case settings and rarely need to change them.

Time to get that sensor cleaned.

You're also clearly editing these images, take a little time and remove the dust bunnies. It ruins a potentially great shot.

Red Dog,

To me, your tip will be a great help!

I will experiment with it, and possibly get better results.

Thank you!

I took a look at the most recent images, mine and other's, but didn't see many obvious dust spots. Which picture(s) are you referring to?
