How about you show yours first, since I'm such a liar, you would just cut them to pieces and claim I didn't shoot them or something.
Get over yourself, you know full well that you SAID YOU SELECTED A SIDE AUTOFOCUS POINT AND THEN EXPECTED IT TO HAND OFF TO OTHER POINTS. An impossibility with the 6D, but a reality with the 5D3 and 1DX.
"When I tried servo tracking with an outer point on the 6D, it would frequently start out in focus then drift successively to backfocusing as the kid ran closer."
How can you "try" a single outer AF point without selecting it? You can't. What you said was intentionally misleading, if you are now claiming you did not select that point. If you had all AF points active, then that's what you're doing...you're not "trying" an outer AF point.
Case closed on that, you lost.
How about this? Rather than me posting pictures of minors who are my relatives on the internet...why don't you give me your phone number and we can discuss this on the phone, Dr. bigshot. I am open to an autofocus shootout with anyone who ever happens to travel into my area. You could...unless of course you're afraid to travel in the South. I have no doubt you can travel anywhere you wish on a whim, Dr. bigshot.
Btw, I've been to Boston quite a few times. I have cousins who grew up there. Both my uncle and one of his sons attended MIT, and the son taught there for a number of years. The daughter got married on the Harvard campus in the chapel. I attended the wedding...a few months before 9/11/01. I'm grateful the wedding wasn't in september, or my family and I might have been on one of those airplanes!
Your part of the country has its strengths and its weaknesses...so come down off your high horse Dr. bigshot, and act your age. There's no need for this constant petty snideness you're happy to hurl at me...calling me a liar. At least I know how to use a "crude" autofocus system.
For the record, of course I selected an outer point, and put it on the subject. No, I did not expect a handoff. Yes, I kept the selected point on the subject. The 6D failed to track, and shots got successively backfocused. It was evident that the AF point remained on the subject, otherwise it would have locked on to something else. The subject was not a blurry mess with something else in focus, s/he was just out of focus enough so the shots became useless as the camera failed to track properly.
Independently, I used the center point to start in 11-pt auto select. There, I expected the camera to hand off focus to the outer points. Many times, it did. Other times, it failed miserably. Frequency of those failures was unacceptably high, to me.
Case closed, the 6D lost.
As for the rest of your thoroughly insulting post, it's apparent that you will often meet criticism of the 6D with vitriol and personal attacks. Give you my phone number so I can be subjected to verbal insults as well? Don't be ridiculous.
It would be nice if you would stop misinterpreting my statements and overtly misquoting me to support your opinion. But rather that hope for something that may not happen, I'm not going to continue this discussion further. I will simply ignore your posts, and trust the mods will deal with the situation appropriately if the insults continue.
