Interesting, I just checked and I don't seem to get it on my 7D or my 20D. I do get an occasional blip indicator.

7D manual confirms that.

In AI servo, that is all you are going to get, an occasional "blip"

Thanks for the CC, Dave...with my T2i I am getting a beep focus indicator on the back button setting. Will practice with the new setup asap.

With one shot AF you would normally get an in focus indicator. When you switch to AI Servo you lose that indication.

And I would encourage you to stick with the back button focus for a while to get used to it.

If you are shooting wide open I would not use the focus-recompose method as your plane of focus will shift as you recompose.

For a test shot, don't worry about composition yet and use your center point and focus on her eyes and take the shot and she if her eyes are sharp.

I agree. If you are shooting wide open, and reasonably close to your subject, your dof is going to be razor thin.

Want to know how thin?

Thanks so much for the CC...this point seems to hit the nail on the head. In an effort to achieve max bokeh, I have been shooting many images at 1.8, not realizing I did not have to go this wide open for good bokeh. I have also been focusing and recomposing...

Wow...thanks Dave...this is an eye opener...somewhat shocking, actually.

Just downloaded a DoF App to keep close by.
Having recently bought the canon 85mm f1.8 to use on portraits, these values made me gulp!


Tons of enthusiasm, loads of kit, limited skill...
