Care to explain ?. More focus points don't mean jack. You might know the 7D articles do you really really know how to use it ?. Yes, I'm in the mood to argue with anybody about AF.
Yes i know very much how to use the 7D camera. I think Teamspeed myself and a few others were one of the few that figured it out and started answering countless posts 2 yrs ago
My issue was not so much the AF system on the 7d but rather the 1.6 format. And i beg to differ...45 points do me jack. One of the things i truly liked about the 7D was being able to use the focal points for composition and not have to resort to center point and recompose with the 5D2. We all know the outer points are weak on the 5D2. I really appreciate the extra spots on the mark111. The mark111 KILLS a 7D for low ISO work. I shoot almost everything OCF at a wedding and i want my ISO as low as i can get it and if i go up, its got to be clean. Below 800 ISO, a 1DMKIII buries a 7D so there were other reasons why i went that directions.
But the AF system was good on the 7D if you knew how to use it. My issues with the 7D were more about image quality and 1.6 format more than anything else i suppose, but after spending the past season with a Mark111 i am more at ease on the MarkIII.......it simply never misses. Even Servo and the complaints they had about it works pretty darn good as far as Im concerned and for low light focusing and image quality, markIII beats the 7D all day long. You cant leave the 7D is spot for everything. It missed in AF point expansion, not a lot, but enough to raise a flag, and i missed enough in Zone AF to get me ticked off especially for tight sports shots with 2 or more players in the zone.
