thank you!

.....& out-takes too! I'd love to see a proofs of all the
shots,...not just the ones you decided to post to show the glory of
the 5D's AF performance at f4 at 1600 iso, and 125ths....which is
what I would call, good light!

BTW, couldn't you have shot a little tighter..?

Try shooting at 1/30ths at f2.0, with a 135mm f2.0 L, 5D, 1600iso with reliable AF, of a subject moving around the outside of the stage that they made for him to walk around on,..but didn't.. and instead chose to walk around the dark table seating areas instead! Regardless of my lousy tools ..(the 5D), I had to shoot this low contrast large guy against a sea of people with more contrast than him! .....kind of like the opposite of your "sucky" photos.. In some spots the table seating was brighter than him, who is wearing all black,....and then brag about how great the AF of the 5D is!

I used Manual focus because the AF of the 5D was giving me nothing but mush!:

P.O.S. 5D AF if you ask me!
