    d1rtyice I don't think the 5r is capably of that. If you set autofocus mode to AF-C and drive mode to continuous shooting you will get tracking but at only about 3-4 frames per second. In speed priority, 10 frames per second with AF-C set I believe the focus is locked after the first frame.

    And the tracking you get with AF-C and S mode is not that good at all. Better pre-focus where you want to yield the best results.

    Setting the focus point by tapping on the screen (if you enable touch mode) will automatically triggers focus tracking. I don't know how well this performs on burst mode though. With static objects and single shoot mode it performs quite well.
