My XSi's AF has been stellar and downright bad in what appears to be

were so spectularly well focused. But, the more I've used it, the

I noticed you shot with external flash. Did you have the AF assist
beam enabled (default) and if so, did you use some kind of flash
diffuser, like the Gary Fong Puffer and Lightsphere you mentioned in
your recent posts. That might explain something.
