4 shots out of 12? That is not very assuring.... I hope that's not the best it can do...
Sometimes 4, sometimes 12 ... try do this with 5D2
I agree. Plus it boils down to personal preference as to what is acceptable and what is not. For instance, during the last air show I did, shooting the 7d at full 8fps, I shot 600-700 shots for 1 show. Out of those I would say 6 out of 8 images would look great at Internet/screen shot sizes. 2 out of 8 probably on that burst rate, after final edits would be good at 100% print should I need it to do so. The OP probably pulling his 4 out of 12 based off of final edits, perhaps a different photog may find more keepers in that batch, maybe another finding fewer. It's just more of a personal preference.
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.
The AF Servo on the mkIII is really spectacular! While it is no sports, when I had the mkIII for a few days I tool some shots of my 2 year old daughter playing sliding in the park. I will say that almost all of them were in perfect focus while she was moving (34 out of 37)! With my mkII that number would be the opposite, that is 2-3 maybe out of the bunchwould have been in focus!
