And btw, when you remove af-on from the shutter and using backbutton focus ( af-on) ai-servo acts like one-shot... (see custom settings)... just release af-on button and the focus will be locked...

I agreement that the focus Will be locked, but as explained in the beginning, ai-servo gives no garanty that THE object is in focus as you can always take the picture, while one-shot will only allow you to take a photo when the object is in focus (Beep, green light)

FWIW - I use BBF and have assigned the DOF preview button to switch between AI Servo and AI One Shot. Then I can use BBF AI Servo and, while holding the back button, momentarily switch to AI One Shot to lock focus by pressing the DOF button. This works on the 5D Mk III and 7D, I know.

  • Great gear is good. Good technique is better.

Using AI servo for both stationary and moving subjects with the 1DX.  It's rather liberating not having to think about toggling AF modes now.

M, 5Dc, 1Dx, some lenses, a few lights
