Wow Nitin, you don't post a lot but when you do, it's always brilliant!

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Is it me or does the 5DIII's shutter button is pretty sensitive. I could barely press it halfway to initiate the AF when it triggers the shutter release.

Are you kidding me? It is so much better IMO, I have been using it since my T1i days, I think I have forgotten how to focus the ''normal'' way

When I shoot weddings I have people who walk in front of me all the time, but it doesn't bother me because I lock the focus and keep my finger on the back button and can keep shooting without losing the focus on the subject. On a shoot focus and recompose all the time using the back button, it allows me to recompose just once and shoot several times. Shooting a moving subject, always pressing the back button all the time while shooting continuous on AI Servo. I guess if someone is used to the other way it works just fine, but for me the back button focusing is much much better and practical
