Oh Loordy panning aircraft
hell they'd be easy its not like they are travelling AT you, they travel accross you and the AF should be ample, hell I used to pan V8 super cars from 100m doing 300Kmph across me using the original D30 some 10 years ago.
How about some sports photogs put up some sports images??
I'm with you on this one! I'm pretty sure even a Rebel KISS thingy (350D?) could track a flying aircraft consistently... When I first started photography I had one and took it to the Le Mans 24 race in 2007. Not one out of focus image of high speed race cars. I'd wager my 5D3 that it would provide 99.9% focus accuracy at an airshow, providing I did my part
A few months back I was shooting Canada Geese flying towards me off the water in mist. On scene I was thinking the 5D3 (70-200 ii + 1.4 x ext) wasn't tracking well enough. A few things corrected me. My friend shooting a Nikon D300S/70-200 f/2.8 VR combo got one shot in focus. Some of my shots that were OOF were actually within the focus limited 2.5m mfd! Added to that almost all the OOF images were my fault; I had failed to keep the AF point on target. In reality I got a pretty good hit rate under the circumstances, and thats mainly down to the excellent 5D3 AF
