It's the Cap!

I noticed that when I did headshots for the local college, the eye AF on my R6 wouldn't pick up the eye on the baseball players (who were the only athletes wearing a cap) like it would everyone else. My conclusion is the cap fools the eye AF algorithm. This is probably a contributing factor to your problem.

I have configured my bbf to have one button do eye AF and another button do spot AF. This way, if eye AF isn't grabbing what I want, I can quickly switch to another focus method by just pressing another button.

On the volleyball, even with eye AF I got a lot with the net in focus. What was your secret there?
