Re: 5D AF sucks---see examples

Nice photos.

1. Hard to tell if in-focus, size quite small.

2. You have very high contrast, spot lighting, not what I would call challenging available lighting situation, where 5D is prone to failure
3. Quite deep DOF forgives a lot
4. Center focus point only?

Remove any/some of these and 5D AF starts to hunt, misbehave and just plain misfocus.

Yes, it can be used properly, but IMHO, takes way too much fiddling to do so, causing not so creative limitations.

But the photos are good and that's what matters, you went around the limitations, congrats for that.
