Actually, I use spot AF with AI Servo for photographing tiny hummingbirds. It's not very good but it's better than anything else. Also, in my experience and according to what I've read, the 7D has the most difficulty with objects coming straight toward the camera. That makes intuitive sense to me, because the distance is changing fastest when the object is coming straight towards you (or going straight away from you).


I've shot Indy Cars moving towards me with the 7D and had no issues with tracking.

I doubt that was the issue with a car moving at 30 mph.
