Thanks AI Focus (& high iso performance)Quite likely true about AI Servo. But...AI Servo is not the same as AI Focus. Pros using 1-series bodies aren't using AI Focus - they can't, because it's not an option.
If all you shoot is static subjects then you're unlikely to use AI Servo. But most action shots you see whether they be action sports or a bride walking down the aisle, you can be pretty sure AI Servo helped deliver the goods.
Hah! True, I owe Rat an apology. Sorry Mr Rat. As I have primarily used 1-Series bodies and just recently got a 5D3, AI FOCUS has been completely off my radar. It's quite likely off most photographers radar. I just read AI focus as AI Servo. I'm sure there are shooters who value the function, but like you I can barely see the point.
It's absence from 1-Series bodies speaks volumes. It looks like an invention from the marketing department who wanted more boxes to tick for consumer sales.
