Very nice! Not easy with the birds against that background.

I presume that you had your focus limiter set? I would also be interested in all the other settings that you used! Focus points? Centre priority? etc.

F5, 1/2500, auto ISO, CAF +1, E shutter 18fps L, 9x7 custom AF points, no centre priority or centre start, Sync IS On and FPS Priority, shutter release priority on and AF Limiter 4-120m. EE1 Dot Sight... most important of all.

I am still on the fence with the +1 CAF setting... I used to use +2 and think for swallows rapid changes in direction, probably +2 will be better.

I would have thought that the E shutter wasn't fast enough for swallows.
