Re: translation from swedish photographer

The swedish photographer states the following:

"När det i alla fall gäller stillastående motiv är min bedömning att
EOS 50D har världens troligen hittills snabbaste autofokus. "

and it translates into:

"When it comes to static (non moving) objects, my assesment is that
the EOS 50D probably has the fastest AF so far."

Probably the Digic IV which is faster.

This sounds very promising for me. I don't care about shooting birds, I just want a fast accurate center AF point that works well all the way to F/1.4. I'm confident that his assessment is good as I really don't think he would boast that a test camera had the fastest out of focus AF he had ever used.

It will be very interesting to see how the 50D and rumoured new 5D perform in the real world.
