Redteg94,

Thanks for looking and commenting.

You're welcome, your shots are often very good and I never stopped to tell you, so I decided to after seeing these.

Its not really trial and error, more like constantly adjusting focus and releasing the shutter when focus is achieved - its easy enough to see when the feather detail snaps in to focus with the viewfinder on the E5.

Your eyes are better than mine I guess, lol (and I'm only 25). I find it difficult to nail the focus (MF) through my 7D's VF and it's even larger than the E5's. Especially with a jumpy subject and such thin DOF (I don't even have a lens as fast as a 350/2.8 either). I truly commend your technique. Cheers,

Gary
