Re: More is better! Misperception about how AF works

There seems to be a misperception that to use automatic 51-point dynamic-area AF will give the best result, always. More point is better and of course 51 is better than 9. It is not.

However, if you have to use to use automatic 51-point dynamic-area AF, why do you think it is possible to use the multi selector to select the focus point in the viewfinder?

When you choose the automatic 51-point dynamic-area AF, I guess the persons are running around.

I have to say that I find the AF-S Single-servo AF to be my choice, when I take picture of a group of people. At least if they are not running around.
