These look very good. Clean and sharp! You won't have any problems with AF tracking of the MkIV once you'll get used to the new camera. The 7D is actually more demanding than the MkIV and I know what you mean about reach I take regularly the 7D with the 400/5.6 and the MkIV with the 70-300L with me and when I need reach I always "reach" for the 7D
Like Tim said leave the Defaul Settings: they should be your starting point. The only CF I would change is the CFIII-2, the tracking speed sensitivity, to see which setting gives you the max number of keepers according to your style of shooting.
The Canon guide to AI servo AF custom functions is very confusing as it is setting the CF. This is why Canon changed it in the newly released cameras.
One thing you should also know is that C.Fn III-4 set to '0' (or "1") negates the AI servo tracking sensitivity setting (C.Fn III-2). However, that is correct only if you have enabled the AF expansion with the CF III-8. With CF III-8 set to "0" (Disabled) the CF III-4 will be inactive and the AF will behave according to setting of the CF III-2.
All this will make no or little difference if you shoot short bursts of frames and regain focus again and so on..... and that is my style of shooting.
Congrats on your new camera!
Thanks for th info. I appreciate it. I will have to reset everything again then, and just change the servo speed and use back button focus since I do not like the shutter button for focus handling. I have tried just center point and center with surrounding and left right and I seemed to get better overall results with just the center point but that could be a fluke.
