Thanks! I’ve been using auto but I find case 2 works quite well. I just did a firmware update too for the R6 and RF 35mm so will be interesting if that does anything.

I rarely used Servo back when I had DSLR’s but got used to using continuous on Sony as they are optimized for that and not One Shot so have to get servo set to my liking.

So I am assuming you have the ability to get into those case menu's and customize them a little ?? Like a 5D4. Like teamsppeed, I set servo up to fit my needs....I SLOW servo to a crawl...And I never use base settings

Yes, you can customize the cases to your needs.

I prefer case 1 with Tracking sensitivity set to -2 and Accel/decel at +2.
For BIF this has worked well for me.

So far auto Servo has been working well without any issues so I think I'll keep using that.

This is with the RF 85mm f/2

Watched this video (external link) and set the AE lock button to Eye Detection AF and my hit rate improved.

Day 2 of the R6, I set AF ON to be eye detect and * to be spot AF (or really selected AF mode, which is usually set to spot AF). Works great to have 2 different AF setups. I wanted a 3rd and was going to set up another button, but they are limited in the settings you can set, so not very useful beyond the 2 buttons IMO.

I have the R5 set exactly like this, except * is with Single point Expansion area. Works pretty well.

New to the thread as I just got my R6 at the beginning of the month, but I came from the R.

This body is a game changer with the sharpness and I'll give in that the IBIS is pretty darn cool.

That's where I ended up after two days, once I realized that I was going to use eye AF the majority of the times, and I'd only want to drop back to spot AF on occasion. Made much more sense to have the eye AF on the primary AF-ON button.

I started with AF ON as single point with expansion which was my normal do all including BIF on a DSLR... but things have changed :)
Now the YE AF is the do all and DEFINITELY BIF, and that leaves the alternate * as the low speed looking for specific detail. with spare time on my hands :)

Santa Claus has crash landed in my garden and out spilled 2 x EOS R6's, 1 X RF 24-105 F/4 and a RF 100-500, plus 2 x battery grips and two extra HD batteries. :lol:

All this despite major supply issues for almost anything as the international shipping chain is in major disarray. We have 12 ships waiting to dock and most stores are selling vapourware right now. The units I have came on time, and with Canon and dealer discounts. Awesome... :-D

I'd better think about getting out and taking photographs more often, I guess...

I hope he is kind to you too, wherever you are!

Those are some nice goodies from St. Nick. You must have been on the nice list :-)
