Nikon lacks cross sensors in each side...:(

Sure...but because we know cross sensors are better than the rest. And, because Nikon has them all bunched in the middle.

Ever look at the cross sensor array in a 7D ? It's different .

Like you, I'd welcome an AF module that had all cross sensors, or at least more of them, out in the outer regions. I don't understand why that wouldn't be useful to pros or anyone that actually uses the outer AF points.

But, Nikon has not offered any camera with an AF module like that. I don't expect them to change that anytime soon either. Indeed, you are one of the few people that I've even see mention the desire for more cross points.

Seems like a lot of folks don't really care about how well the stuff works, so long as they have a sensor with lots of MPs. That's all that they want. It doesn't seem to matter if the noise performance and FPS goes back to the d70 days or worse.

Kerry...I just checked the cross sensors on Canon's 5D3...and indeed, there are cross sensors off to each side....sigh...sooooo  would like that in my next cam.

I will really have a tough decision to make in the next 6 mo...go with what Nikon offers, or sell lenses and go with the better AF that Canon offers.
