just look good on paper. No power to operate all the points. It is
crippled(they like to say about this to Canon)

Dont want to participate too much in these discussions which tend to
go out of hand but here are some samples of 51 pt AF-C dynamic with a
D300 for those who thinks it doesnt work or is "painfullly slow" as
some claimed.

Decent pics OK, but nothing I see I could not do with my 7-point AF
(350D) or 9-point AF (30D upgraded recently to 40D) cameras. Not dog
shots, but many sport and very many soccer pics taken.

ohyva, I am just trying to lay to rest the myth that the 51-point mode on the D300 is too slow for good action shots.

BTW the swedish bird photographer pro Brutus Östling who tested the
AF of the 50D was very impressed with it, so its probably very good.
