Re: Why no focus issues with D5100 or D3100 compared with D7000

As the owner of a d5100 and not being in a position to buy multiple cameras its a matter of making the best of what I have. I simply learned and dealt with my cameras limitations and now all I focus on is getting the picture I want.

First of all I exclusively use single point AF. I always want to be in control of what I am focusing on instead of hoping the camera guesses right.

Secondly in terms of depth of field and getting the right plane in focus I have learned what the combination of each lens and my camera is capable of under which given settings. For e.g. using my 35 mm f1.8g @ events, I know that to achieve the right plane of focus at f2.8 I have to focus on a given point if its a persons face etc.

Does this mean the D5100 does not have focus issue? Perhaps it does. The thing is that D5100 owners can't fine adjust with a button, so we adjust with our brains, eyes and feet.
