Re: As far as the Eye Controlled AF

I bought the EOS 3 because I wanted a step up from my EOS A2, and I was interested in the eye controlled focus, which never did work very well for me.  It was about a year after I bought the camera when one of my daughters looked at me and ask Ed why my right pupil was larger than my left.  After visits to eye doctors and neurologists and an MRI of my brain, I learned that my right eye had a condition called anisocoria where my the nerves in my eye had lost control of my pupil and it was constantly fully open.  So, I never did find out if eye controlled focus was useful, but I still have the camera and one f these days I’m going to shoot another roll of film with it.
