Manual Focus is not all bad!
In reply to OldNick, Aug 23, 2008

I was just out trying the camera, taking shots of the dog hunting rabbits in the wood pile, climbing all over it.

I set to manual focus, and used the "auto" part of the MF to set the focus. This probably doubles the single-click shot speed, because you have set the focus to where you want, and the camera does not keep trying. The camera can pretty well keep up with even this rate of fire....about 1 per second after maybe 5 shots, faster before that..

But basically it means that the half-press time is far faster for each shot.

Just a thought for some situations.
