"RE: What Auto Focus Settings Do You Use?"

I attend my daughters' artistic gymnastics meets. The gymnasts' movements are very fast - but almost always predictable even on the floor. The gyms are usually poorly lit, so I mostly shoot with my 85 mm f/1.8 and 135 mm f/2.0 primes wide open. ISO 1600 and 1/800s are usual settings for me.

I end up with too many out-of-focus pictures especially when trying to get a series of pictures of tumbling passes etc. Large apertures and focal lengths with shallow depths of field are naturally a part of the problem.

Is there anything you'd change in these settings:
- AF Continuous
- AF-C 9 points
- a1 bRelease-focus
- a3 Normal (3)
- AF-ON button for focusing
- 10 FPS
?
