I was shooting with the Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 hsm. I think AF-D doesn't work on this lens. I was using high continuous drive point focus AF-S and AF-C. I found that AF-C is doing better then AF-S. The keeper rate is about 10%. I was struggling with face recognition focusing but it is not very effective. Most of the time I focus on the body as that is the biggest mass. Next time I will try local focus with the point focus adjusted to the upper part so that I can focus on the face better. I am pretty sure I can improve thing as I attend more indoor events. I am actually very interested in figure skating and artistic/rhythmic gymnastics.
