Re: 90D for wildlife?

Does anyone actually find 80D's tracking to be better than 90D? I thought I saw a few comments claiming such. Generally I find the 80D tracking good for herons, gulls and eagles, but impossible for swallows unless they are by a nest box or against the sky. I prefer using 9-point zone AF, but while it does fairly well for BIF, it seems to prefer using the bottom points for stationary objects, thus front-focusing when photographing a duck or other swimming bird (though I suspect my Tamron G2 has a role in that too). I've had the same issue with the 760D  (which uses the 7D AF system) using the same lens.

Also curious about the M6 Mark II consider as Gordon Laing considered it superior for tracking BIF. He's not the most experienced reviewer for wildlife photography but it sounds too good to be true when he says M6II has the second-best AF tracking after 7DII...
