the tech-discussion on the AF "issue'"in the various threads.

Does this new understanding (Thanks mishkin!)make it possible to
put into some reasonable number of words , a "best" way for the
user to maximize the AF potential of his rig, ...or a best way to
test/adjust "whatever" for that "best" performance?

(I mean when using whatever f-stop the photog WANTS to use, for
image reasons other-than-focus.)

This whole "what the camera can/can't do FOR you" thing is the main
reason I won't be happy till I have a pro-level camera that will
let ME do what I want, with a viewfinder that CLEARLY shows me what
is happening.

Thanks,

Larry
