Re: Realistic expectations- pro AF

What top pro DSLR models do you have experience with that have AF systems that are up to the task, in your mind? Give me an idea of what you consider sufficient to meet these demands vs what you consider "inexpensive" gear.

I believe a Canon 1D mark IV, coupled with one of Canon's faster-focusing lenses, would be adequate to get a fair number of keepers when photographing a child running towards the camera at a distance of less than 20 feet in a dimly lit room.

I've never used a Canon 5D mark III, but it seems the overwhelming consensus is that its autofocus system is better than the one in the 1D mark IV.

I don't know how well any of Canon's other new bodies would do.
