Re: My 17 AF points...

According to the threaded view this seems to be a reply to my posting, so I'll reply...

Well, given they're cross all the time, you're right. Although their L and T shapes aren't quite nice either.

You can't actually be so gullible as to automatically associate "more" with "better", can you?

No, I'm not. It's also what's behind the sensor. And the whole system. Sometimes even Canon stabs you in the back as non-1D user. For example, AF assist light works differently for the central sensor illumination on 1D and the rest of the cameras, giving 1D a better performance (tested 400D, 40D, 7D vs 1D2n).

We killed that notion when we were arguing about the 40D vs. the D300!

Added : Just looked at your website. One decent AF point would do you, so - please - just give it a rest...

My website? I'm not sure that I ever put a link in here. The search doesn't find it.
