Thanks Viper28, candyman and CarlTN!

@candyman: Yes it is quite incredible what the 5D3 auto focus is capable of when correctly configured.

Yes, it is VERY impressive.  I had heard that the 5Diii is starting to become a pretty good wildlife camera, and many of the wildlife photographer of the year photos were taken on one.  So much so,  I am seroiusly considering upgrading to one, but have heard tat the autofocus can be a bit tricky.

Cervantes, could you please spill the beans on how one can configure the autofocus to get shots like this?

cheers,

Grant  :)

@TrabimanUK, candyman: Sure can - but this is gonna be a longer post. I also have to check on how I did it exactly on these shots that I posted.

I could probably create a new topic on how to configure the 5D3 for really fast action in a couple of days if some more people are interested.

Some Red Kites feeding in the rain  :(








Awesome!  I've always found working in the rain to be much harder but the results when you can make it work are worth it.
