I thought the 70D AF System handled fluorescent better.....not....

So I went and shot my kids at Karate. Lighting is horrible. The ceiling is lined with old bare bulb fluorescent tubes that consistently return ugly tones, yellow, blue, white, pink hues all over as the lights flicker and impact even full speed shooting.

My 40D struggled but did lead me to get a number of really good shots. I took the 70D tonight and to utter disappointment, I just deleted every damn image as the focus was so poor.

I thought the newer AF Systems handled fluorescent lights better?

Thoughts?
