Got mine from B&H last week and tested it on fast moving dog agility and disc dogs.  Very impressive camera!
All shots were with a 200 f/2 shot wide open or at 2.2.



Second shot is ISO 4000.  Note how it tracked the dog and not the person walking in front for a split second.



Last shot is ISO 5000.

Vera nice! So what was your setting on the focus? Did you choose the points are you let the camera auto track it? Also was in AI or track mode?

Thanks

Case 4
Single point selection with 4 point expansion
AI servo 1st image priority set to equal
