I had my 1dx II with me for my 200-400, so the 100-400 II stayed on the 90d for most of the trip. I did do some shooting with the 70-200 f4 II and 200-400, but nothing exciting. I was shooting in servo, with single point / zone using backbitten focus (which I always use). If you had an animal moving quick and went into a 8-10 shot burst, about frame 7 or 8 it would loose focus. I don't typically shoot anything longer than 8-10 and that is when something is really moving or I want to capture movement. It did seem to find it's way back after several miss-focused shots if I held the burst. This was in wide open spaces in YNP with no trees or high grass to grab focus. I will say the image and high ISO were much better than anything I ever got with my 7d /7d II. I really wanted to like the camera, so I gave it every chance. The trip was end September / beginning of October 2019 right after the camera was released.Since I have a 7DII (but use mostly 5DsR) for birding but I am thinking about getting 90D sometime in the future can you please clarify a little more? Like: Which kind of lenses did you use? (I use 100-400 but mostly 400DOII and 500II) Was the AF inconsistent in high fps AI servo cases mostly?
Any info would be welcome...
