70D 19-point AF auto selection issue (like 7D)
3 months ago

Hi,
I have looked through the forum but I've not found similar thread regarding the EOS 70D. All the problems discussed on the forum are related with problems using fast lens with the 70D and the single central focus point (in my case I have only 18 135 kit lens so I don't know if I have that problem, I don't think).
My problem is related to 19-point AF auto selection, the same identical problem that other guys have with their 7D. I've found discussions here:

Actually, when I shoot using autoselect 19-point all the pictures are blurred. I know that camera would focus on the nearest object, this is ok! But I don't understand why the camera shows you wrong focus points (red boxes). You think that the focus is under that point but is fake.
Ok, you can use single AF point, the central one or the others, but in some case, for example when you took a landascape or no subject in particular, you may choose to use the 19-point AF auto selection.
I've made some comparison shot with my old EOS 600D (rebel) and the rebel is winner with its 9-point AF system (and only one cross type). No blurred pictures using 9-point autoselect, the focus is exactly where the camera shows.
Suggestions? Someone has the same problem?
Thanks everybody, I hope the explanation is clear and sorry if I've done some mistakes
