Re: 6D MKII Focus question

As others have said, make sure you are in servo AF (not the rather useless auto mode that supposedly detects movement).  The camera needs a certain amount of time to actually track focus as well.  Sometimes it feels instantaneous, other times less so.  I always map focus to the back button so that it is separate from the shutter and often I will sort of 'pump' the button a few times to get the camera to re focus.

The 6Dii is not bad at fairly fast action.
