5D III and model jets (lots of images)
Sep 28, 2012

I just wanted to share my experience with the 5D3's AF.

I've been using the 7D ever since it came out in 2009, and it has always left me wanting more accurate AF.

Since I bought a 5D3 a month ago, I've been amazed by the speed and accuracy of it's AF. Even if you get a lot fewer pixels on target with a 5D3, the image quality and AF just blows the 7D away! The number of in focus shots has increased greatly.
Some days ago I sold my 7D because it's not going to see any use in the future.

I found using all 61 focus points with case 2 worked out best for both model planes and full size planes. The exeption is when the plane very near to the ground. Then expansion points gave more keepers.

I posted these in another thread, so sorry to you who have seen them before
