Tons of options.
AF is sort of a big deal for me. I like my images to be perfectly in focus. If I'm standing in the lake and trying to use one of the stray AF points, I can't be there all day.
In an ideal world, I would have a stable full of Nikons, Canons, Panasonics, Olympuses and Mamiyas.
As for the comedian who thinks I should change my technique, well, lol. Not sure there's much else I can do. My steps are this: select AF point closest to the composition I want to have. Half-press shutter. Wait. Try again. Wait. Try...Show more →
Oh, this one's directed at me? I did not say anything about your photos. I was talking about your attitude.
In my "Ideal world' I'd have ONE camera and a set of lenses that did everything I needed. In your ideal world, you'd like to have every possible brand under the sun. So let's imagine your ideal world. You'd probably be blaiming Nikon for ugly skin colors, Canon for inaccurate AF, Panasonic and Olympus for noisy images and Mamiya for being slower than a snail.
The 5DII, while being somewhat handicapped in AF department is merely a tool. Many people here (for example in the wedding forum) made huge amount of money with it. Anne Leibowitz shot with 5DII back in the day. How could she survive this awful camera that constatnly produces OOF photos? So I'm *guessing* you're probably doing something wrong.
I take photos of boring things. I should also update my sports section with more recent photo, so you can bash more of my boring photos. Most of those old ones were taken with 40D, which has about the same AF module as 5DII
