7D and 70-200 f2.8 II plus Canon 1.4 extender AISERVO Consistency
7 months ago

I've been using the 7D with a Canon 70-200 f2.8 II plus Canon 1.4 extender.

When I am shooting sports in AISERVO mode with the 7D, it appears to be front focusing a bit.

It I target a player's body, the face is not sharp but an extended leg/kneecap might be more sharp.

I have micro adjusted it a couple of times (+ 5 right now) and taking static images around the house it seems to be focusing fine in AISERVO.

Is the nature of AISERVO with the 7D one that just does not lend itself to consistency?

My custom function settings are what they need to be based on reading many threads on shooting sports.
