Re: How did I miss this? Bird eye detection?

I think it will be more of a gimmick than a very useful feature.

I can definitely see it being able to track a birds eye when it’s perched in a tree or something and you fill the frame with the bird, but for BIF when it doesn’t fill the frame I doubt it will work. 
Even with the largest of birds, bald eagles, pelicans, great horned owls and herons the eyes are very small. If you have to crop your images most likely the bird is to far away for the auto focus to be able to lock on to a eye and track it.

I would love to be wrong and for it to work but I don’t think it will
