Re: I'd rather pay $600 more and get better AF

Not sure I understand. When you said the AF for the 40D & 50D was a
given, you mean the 5DII doesn't have the same AF, or that you
expected a better system?

He's saying that he thought (as I did) that 9 cross type sensors (a la the 40/50D) would be the bare minimum, and yet the 5D delivers less than that.

HOWEVER... let's not forget those 6 invisible assist points... maybe they will more than make up the difference..???
