I've had photo rejection with this reason taken at 1/250 of stationary train in good light. A fairly distant street name sign wasn't sharp and it took a bit of looking to even notice it. The photo screener likely had better eyes than me. I suspect same AF issue might be responsible for this rejection if shutter speed was more than sufficient. I really had problems with 60D with the AF. It wasn't just the camera either as I had this with 5DS I use now and each case is probably just twitchy finger after vigorous vegetation management, more often just resulting in a premature shot but very occasionally sharp focus is not reached such as this one taken at 1/640 f 7.1 (and note road signs obviously out of focus.)
