To date, I have not noticed any improvement.

But to be fair, I rarely have face/eye on these days, as it struggles to identify faces with masks.

I’ll also add the 16-55 continually impresses me by blowing away all my other lenses in terms of AF; maybe that’s a factor here.

Let me check and get back to you!

Same set up. I’m going to give it a try again and see if it works any better. Can you please give me your best AF settings for face detect??

I noticed it worked best in Face detection (not Eye detection), AF-S. When it recognized the face, it kept seeing it even if the person turned from the camera,which is something I haven't noticed before.

In AF-C it also involved some tracking, but when thenhead turned, it wasn't tracking it anymore (most of the time). Also is single shot mode it worked better than in burst mode.
