One-shot for static subjects, AI Servo of action. I' ve always shot this way, and see no reason to change in that I rarely have OOF shots.

Which is why setting the DOF preview to switch to "switch to AI Servo" is fantastic. I shoot static subjects most of the time, but when something is moving and I can simply press a button to have the camera follow it (without having to manually change modes)... that's just gold.

Not sure if my 60D can do that, but switching modes in Q only takes a second.
