The AF of the 100L has to be used to believe. I use it on both a 5DIII and 7D and in conditions of a slight breeze, the camera can track the object even at high magnification.

+1  Isn't it just amazing?

(Macro) AF keeper percentage with other lenses/systems was always so low (drove me crazy).  It would focus on the insect's far legs most of the time, or some edge somewhere else.  Now the 100L's AF is so good that it matches my manual focusing in most situations, and even exceeds it when breezy, like you mention.
