    Thanks, man. I'll definitely appreciate any suggestions you may have, even if the kids are 9-10yo so it's not like they are Giannis or Jordan.

    I have a few weeks of experience shooting with the 5D3 and I've since watched a few videos on how to shoot basketball and I only really take action shots. The main thing I anticipate getting over the 5D3 is far more keepers and better shots e.g. ball-in-hand and more usable and "fun" shots of, uh, players shooting and passing.

    My current plan, on which I welcome comments, is AI Servo, Mode 3 AF (the one with a football stick man), zone AF the mainly landscape mode, eye detection off, the Youtube BYU Photo setup for basketball (AF-ON for Spot Focusing [Large point?] and * for Face Tracking), then spray and pray at 12fps. Landscape only photos for now. There were some 0, 0, 1(?) settings on dpreview.com forums I think but I haven't found them again although I'm sure I could at some point.

    OK the R6 Mk2 definitely has much better AF. The only issue is the blackout when using the mechanical shutter, which lasts longer than the mirror blackout in a DSLR and leaves me exposed as I am used to seeing the actual action via the VF. So for sports I have had to use the electronic shutter instead. I wish there were a 15fps setting for that, but I'll take 20fps and cull more aggressively.
