I've had my 60D for awhile and I mainly shoot soccer outdoors. I seem to get many blurry shots despite all of my attempts.
I typically use my 100-400mm lens, 1600 shutter speed, wide open (depending on light), evaluative metering, auto ISO and all 9 autofocus points (automatic). When I put a wide autofocus point on a subject it still tends to focus on something nearer to the center point, nor does the focus confirmation light ever come on. If I get my subject perfectly in the middle, it works out, but they are always moving and largely unfocused.
If I use the basic modes it'll highlight which focus point is being used. I wish I was getting that feature the way I'm trying to shoot.
