I did not find the largest AF box to be the best approach for good results. I usually use the smallest or second to smallest AF rectangle to narrow down on the region that the AF should lock.

In my tests I found that the largest box is the shotgun approach. The rectangle turns green but it probably locked on the strongest contrast edge it could find. And that does not have to be the subject you were aiming for...

I would have zone focused in this kind of street photography situation...

Cheers,
Smatty
