I use the bottom center for probably 90% of my shots, * button from day one for AF with my 10D in 2004. I pretty much stick to center weighted average metering and adjust exposure comp based on blinkies.

Opinions please: Center focus point only or all focus points selection ?

For motorsports, using my 7D, I can use any of the 19 focus points I want, they all do pretty darn good at picking up the intended point.

This one IIRC I used bottom row, right side, second in from the edge...I really can use all of them, I love that 7D.

Love mine too, but the 5D MkIII AF is insane. It's nice to have both.

Burst rate on the MKIII is 6 FPS IIRC...which is fast, but 8 is better!

I would love to have a MKIII...but then I would need all new Editing software too...and I can't afford to do both.

I shot this past Monday for Just Track It, LLC at Atlanta Motorsports Park...gotta love rental cars on track!

I get on OK with the AF on my ancient 1Ds2, the 7D is nice for the FPS and much larger buffer though!

I have not shot open wheel cars much, Indy Car a couple years ago...this weekend there was a Super7 in the field, and that car was hard to shoot, what do you pick as your target? Pick the helmet and the wheels are all OOF or blurred from motion...pick the wheels and the helmet is OOF or blurred...

I generally go for the helmet, I like the sense of motion that is given by all the blurr but you get the "concentrating driver" in more clarity. With a near to side on pan you can get more detail in focus, but still with a slow shutter speed on a bumpy track it's not all going to be sharp. Of course you can raise the shutter speed as well, but where's the fun in that?

no fun shooting too fast! Most of what I did when I shot some Indy car was side pans or head on shots that were faster anyway...guess I need more practice on open wheel. we don't get a lot of open wheel around me.

Why do you say that? What are you using for the 7D CR2s that won't also handle 5D III CR2s?
