No way will I let the camera decide !

I use single-point, AF-C, AF-ON button, Release-priority for everything.

This way I get far better and more consistent keepers.

I've been using this religiously more or less.  I just don't understand the need for the other modes.  if I'm shooting at F2.8 my DOF is fairly thin from 70-200; how does the camera know I want the eyes of a subject.  Truth is it doesn't seem to and I got a lot more misses with those other modes.  I'm nearly dead-on all the time now with this method.
