Great shots!!!

I know you are a Canon man and now have a very nice 'toy' :Gbut how do you find them for focusing when the subject is moving towards you? I have a KM 5D and it does not seem to be up to the job for this, even with the Sigma 70-200mm f2.8.

Thanks,

Mark

Mark,

The 1D MKII N does a excellent job a lot better than my 20D for subjects moving towards the camera,Had a lot more shots at slower shutter speeds with the front of car focused where with the 20Dmore often the back of the car was in focus.

Ross,

Was using Canon EF 400mm f5.6 L with and without Canon 1.4x TC.

Thanks for the comments.
