why doesn't 5DmarkII have 50D's 9 cross AF sensor?
Sep 26, 2008

40D and 50D both have the "new" AF system with 9 AF points having cross sensor. meanwhile the 5D mark II still keeps the 1 cross sensor in the center and has 8 points which are not cross type. any reason for this? any vantages?

so far i couldn't find an answer here on the forum.
