wow. i kinda like the guy for his practical views on lenses.

But this is just complete garbage:

"AF is much more complicated, not necessary better than the original 5D and 5D Mark II." that is the single most untrue statement that you can say about this camera. The 40D has better AF than the mark1 and 2.

and this:

"As I’m learning to use the AF system, I’ve realized that it will never make sense because the AF-Area settings were removed from the Quick Control screen. Now we always will have to look in two different places to set the AF Mode (AI SERVO, AI FOCUS or ONE SHOT), and someplace else to select the manner in which the various AF areas are used."

experienced users shouldn't even be using the Q menu a lot . you don't even need to take your eye off the viewfinder to change the AF area settings.

Q menu is for girls (just a joke that i often tell my friend who gets irritated whenever she uses my 5D2 - because she cant find the Q menu)
