Gary...I'm curious.  When you shoot a fast moving subject coming straight at you like this using a super tele and your 1dx, do you get several oof shots mixed in with the sharp ones when burst shooting?   I do, so I'm just curious if it's normal?

For example, if I shot this eagle coming straight at me with my 1dx 300 2.8 combo I'm guessing that in a 10 -12 shot burst there would be 3 to 5 out of focus. 

Anyone else with thoughts on this I sure would appreciate....sometimes I wonder if I need to send in the 300 for service/inspection.

some times I do but it is almost always me not getting the focus point on right ! canon software shows you where your points hit. if you have focus problems on moving targets  that's the first place to look
