I haven't calibrated my 70-200mm f2.8L to my 5DmkII or enabled anything via custom functions, but I shoot runway in AI servo and get good results all the time....hmm, wonder what it is? I do keep keep pressing my finger on the shutter release halfway all the time to keep refocusing, but you're doing that as well right?

Hope it gets sorted out soon.

Yeah, I do that, I like the AF-on button because I can just hold that down and then shoot without worrying about it refocusing everytime i hit the shutter, from the descriptions it sounds like its the recomposing that's killing the AI servo, when I get some time later in the week I'll do some better controlled tests to see what it can and cant do. Thanks for the feedback guys

Granted I have no experience with the 5D2 (yet!), but in my time with AI Servo and the 30D, it was vital to limit the AF points to just one and to make absolutely sure that stayed glued to the object.

Easy enough when its in clear view, but from anyone who has ever been to an F1 event, a clear view is virtually impossible. Other peoples heads, fence posts, marshalls etc, etc!
