What we need is another Lensrentals AF consistency test. Canon has been making large strides in the AF department as of late. For instance my T4i increased my BIF keeper rate (over my 50D) by more than 50 %. And when the Lensrentals tests came out this year the scores mirrored my own in the field findings exactly.

I haven't had the chance to go BIFing yet with my 70D, but AF in all other instances has been excellent.


I find it really pretty strange that, esp. after so many years into the digital era, no major review DSLR site developed a standardized way of testing the AF speed and accuracy on moving targets in a highly reproducible manner!! Even the Imaging Resource data - pretty often quoted here and elsewhere - report only shutter lags in AF situations dealing with stationary targets, and what is more... with the lenses already prefocused on target
