Hi,

I have heard a complaint by many youtubers that with the Eye-AF you have to select Auto-Area mode leaving you than no option to select the focus point.

I have reconfigured one of the function buttons to select the auto-focus area mode, so whenever I do not want the Eye-AF or the Eye-AF is for some reason stuck I can switch back to, say, single-point or wide-are.

It takes a fraction of second to operate the change, so why is everybody saying that this is a limitation of the Eye-AF?

Maybe I am missing something.

Thanks in advance for your answers.

by definition face detect doesn't use a focus point

its mutually exclusive

the i button can be used to quickly switch between modes. i switch between fine spot and area for face detect. even quicker you can assign a function key but this is unecessary for me.

when face detect is being used, left and right joystick switch between face

perfect ....
