Re: Canon 90D: Question about OVF auto-focus

I am thinking about getting the 90D but am a little concerned about the reported OVF auto-focus issues. In one video I watched, the reviewer discovered that the iTR face-detection option (enabled by default) was the culprit. After the disabling this option, his hit rate went up to about 86% (i.e. very good).

But other buyers have reported erratic auto-focus when using the OVF, regardless of iTR. So, is this a real problem or has it been blown out of proportion?

Thanks in advance for taking the time to respond,


I wonder the same thing. May I add to your question?

Is it possible there was a problem early on, that has been quietly addressed in later production runs?
