Re: Still not happy with the D850 AF


Still singing the same old song ??

None of the birds I shoot images of have official Nikon AF targets sellotaped to their eye line .........

........... yet I still get good sharp shots ..........

Yes - I am still repeating basic advice

Those who do not know that a dark back-lit bird is often not a good subject for accurate AF then they are unlikely to get good focus.

If a bird has good contrast, is decently lit and has reasonable feather separation under the AF point - it comes within Nikon's general guidance - with a high chance of good AF

In lots of ways good photography is much more about how equipment is used rather than anything else.
