Customer Question
I have a Canon...

I have a Canon 70D with a Canon 70-200/2.8L. High School football season has just started, with the usual terrible lighting. The first two games I've shot this season, the autofocus has really acted up. Just going way off on what I would consider easy shots. No changes to the autofocus settings from last year. Do my sensors need cleaning or something?

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your camera? How old is it?

2014 Canon 70D. I don't have a shutter count on it.

Technician's Assistant: What happened right before this popped up? What troubleshooting have you tried?

Nothing happened. I haven't shot any sports all summer. I've checked the autofocus setting in the Menu.

Some of the settings may be amiss.

Have you tried a factory reset on the camera?
Press the MENU button, go to Settings (Tool icon) then select [Clear all camera settings], and press <SET>.

Let me know if that works?
