LOL - Love part of this - "I was shooting running horses and maybe 3 out of 300 images were out of focus"
Now can't wait to see the Tony Northrup review...
"to test the sports AF capabilities, we will shoot my GF walking towards me... The 7D MK II only performed so so getting 6 out of 10 images in focus"
That AF test still bothers the hell out of me. I have no trouble believing that the D810 can track better than the 5D3 in that scenario as Nikon seems to have gone all out with the AF on the D810 and now D750, but that the 5D3 was only hitting 60% makes no sense.
Too me it comes down to one of two things - Incompetence or dishonesty.
He either did not know how to use the camera or he was dishonest. 40% OOF is really bad especially for the type of shooting he was doing.
more likely he just had a lens with an AF motor problem.
