Its not everyday you encounter a farm with it's own caboose!

That's what prompted me to take the photo while driving down the freeway.

Thanks Matt...Certainly...I have been using case two with the tracking sensitivity set to -2 so it is really locked on to the subject. I use back button focus so I can let up on the AF quickly when the subject goes behind something for too long that might throw it off. I am using this setting almost exclusively and I can't express how totally solid it is in Servo. It's light years ahead of anything I have ever used. It really almost can't miss! :D

Trying to understand this camera before it comes :D When you focus with the back button, do you have to shoot continuous in order to track the subject or it can be single shot after single shot?

It can be done in single shots or continuous. It just leaves the focus on.

If I had the cash for a 1DX and the cash availability for me was in the same way of when i bought my 5D3 (affordable and can still live comfortably lol), i'd only go for the 1DX for higher ISO and FPS. Other than that, i'm happy with my 5D3.

Joined the ranks today. First FF camera. First L lenses. I think I'm in heaven. Managed to take a few obligatory first shots before putting the battery on to charge. Now the waiting... it hurts.

These are just resized JPEGs because I haven't even updated my software yet! Can't wait to see the RAWs.

What tracking mode did you use to capture the duck?

I was asking if it's still tracking on singe shot or it has to be continuous

Without reading the whole thread - can anyone give me an idea of it copes with sports indoors.

I mentioned this on a UK based forum and someone said that they had heard it hunts in bad light.

No man, you can have it set up just like the mk2 where you simply use the back button for focus and have it it in servo, one shot, with continuous shoot or single. Daniel, you are going to love this thing. It is such a joy to work with. It really is fun! There is an endlis list of little things that make it great.
