Re: Af mode of choice when shooting moving people?

Back button with focus tracking on so that you can track when needed and single dib when tracking isn't necessary. I select the focus point, and always one as close to the main face as I can, I can't risk the camera getting it wrong.

The big advantage of back button focus is flexibility. You don't need to change any settings on the camera to switch from continuous focus with tracking to single point which is invaluable for quick focus/recompose shots.

Mirrorless with eye detection must have an advantage for the majority of wedding shots.
