Thank you all!

Window Gnat at Night.

Or a midge. One or the other.

Anyway, this one was on the top of the compost bin tonight - and was photographed in total darkness. Focus was by torch, and then swapped that for the flashgun held just above the bug. Very hard to focus when you can't really see anything!

Just got my new 70D (gave up the 5d ii for it). I want to take it out bird shooting this weekend. This focus system is way different/better than the 5d ii and so I am wondering what is best to use? With the 5d ii, I just did middle point focus with single shot. How do you actually track birds with this camera?

THANKS!

My only comment to that is that when in all points/AI Servo (tracking mode), you can actually pick any autofocus point to start from, it does not have to be the center point.

I prefer the 9 center focus points when using A I Servo.
I feel that gives me enough coverage of a moving object.

On a smaller bird/subject, maybe all the focus points would work better.
I'll have to try it out sometime.

Yep, but now thanks to hokie I found one thing that is annoying me about the 70D now (other than the ISO doesn't match a 6D but then again I knew that coming in!)

I have it setup so that after back focusing or half triggering the shutter button the initial AF square shows in the OVF, and then I can use the directional wheel to move it around for a better focus spot... I then suddenly realized while looking at pictures on the internet that the 7D allows you to do this with a little thumbstick that is closer to the back AF button... based on appearances that just looks like it would feel more natural, as I sort of have to move my hand more than I want to move the af point and it feels unnatural to me (or at least right now as I am starting to still build that muscle memory).

I noticed when using the 9 points vs 19 points that the 9 Points seemed to track faster on larger objects. Maybe I was seeing things but it definitely felt like it picked up and tracked slightly faster. I still generally stick to the 19 point for my moving objects (my daughters). I really want to try some BIF's but haven't had the opportunity yet :(
