Re: that's because you have no idea how to use the camera

If I had known the result is like this, I would have taken this burst in AFPS instead of CFP. Because his jump is high beyond my prediction.

So linkingtw, are you going to tell us how to get our Mark IIn's to ignore the center focus point and focus on the closest subject in AI-Servo mode? Or are you going to keep this secret to yourself?

Your jet shots are the best case of where AFPS works (clearly defined subjects with a neutral background) although it's very likely that center point with expansion would have gotten those shots too. Unfortunately there is too much going on in my shots and AFPS appears to be completely incompatible with panning unless the background is neutral like a blue sky.
