p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · you say the 5D's cant focus?


I think its pretty good, I shot 325 youth basketball action shots tonight from under the hoop with a 5D mark 2 and 35L all at 1.4, and I deleted 70 that were oof.

and I never looked through the viewfinder once.

I don't think I've ever seen someone complain about the center point, it does quite well.

Agreed...center point is very good. I like it in servo AF too (even more so with the assist points active).

Hello? 35mm at a basketball game? Where you playing on the field? Where did you stay or sit? Everything far away more than 3 meters should be razor sharp ... - does not matter, wich camera you use ...

I hate people who whine about this crap. Its a camera, if its not focusing it is your fault. I am absolutely in love with my 5DII.

Wow ... a 5D II that is able to focus accurately? That's just amazing!

It's the anonymity of the internet curse: normally manly men are transformed into whiners.

if it is closer to MFD, why would the thumb in #2 and the finger in #3 be in focus ?

Looks like the lens is front focusing rather than the camera messing up.

Guess what lens it was...I'll give you a hint: it's notorious for focus shift. Combine that with often hopeless outer AF performance of the 5 series and, well, the images speak for themselves.
