I just received my 6D last weekend and started playing with it with the 24-105 kit lens. This particular guy always hangs out by the koi pond in the morning. Looks like a flying carrot.

Thanks for the tips. I need to practice more. Which lens do/did you use? I was looking at the 24-70 2.8 but it's way out of my reach for now. The Sigma got some good reviews but I had a 10-20 before and wasn't too impressed with the quality.

I takes a little bit of time to get use to. Depending on what model body you have, I'm sure you can tweak the AF system to your liking. You can adjust AF speed before and after the shutter, adjust how the AF views the subject when objects get into frame, there are many more features that will take time to get use to.
Yes, that's what I was referring to. I would think this feature is a great feature. I guess I need to play with it more. I have a D7000, not sure if I can tweak as much as you mentioned. I do get focus problem now and then with this body but not ready to upgrade yet. Thanks.

I use a variety of lenses. I'm assuming you're shooting Nikon since you mentioned 3D tracking. My workhorse is my Nikon 80-200 f/2.8. I'm looking to trade up to the newer 70-200 VRII eventually but I haven't yet found a buyer for the 80-200.

Other than that I use a 50mm f/1.8 pretty often, a 10.5mm f/2.8 fisheye mostly for crowd shots and for huddles, a 24-70 f/2.8 religiously (this lens is amazing), and a 17-55mm f/2.8.

Those guys are all around the bike trails. Nice that these stayed still for you. My suggestion would be to crop the frame using the rule of thirds.

Thanks. It was fun processing this to what was in my thoughts for this beach scene.
