I use spot 99% of the time and centre group on birds in flight.


so using spot focus as in single spot, would that not be an issue when focusing on say a fox face? would it mean you get only one eye in focus? I have routinely use center focus with the 4 surrounds ones activated and case 2 or 5 nearly all the time

I guess the answer Julie is yes.. and no. While the infocus portions of the face will be decided by your distance to the face, stopping down will greatly deepen your field of seemingly in focus as you know. One can watch the focus move in and out making the face sharp or at least thats what I am dong. I'm conscious of the in focus portion of the face not just where the view finder tells me the focus point is. I guess is the best way I can describe how I shoot wildlife. and if their not looking at me then the off side is going to be just outside of dead on. thats were infield MFA or simply moving your focus forward or back just for a particular shoot or subject is very useful.

I'm not a fan of noses being out of focus most of the time, so you can see I chose f7.1 at what ever distance I was from this little girl. I'm betting I shot her in the nose first then down to her eye on the left. I watch for the eye shine while shooting and pull the trigger then, On everything.

To me having the hole face is important and tough at only a few meters. f7.1 again, yes shooting in darker conditions but I needed the depth.

This is the end of a really big yawn....and of course my avatar .... focus fell left of right on her nose. I probably shot her in the left eye and pulled it to her nose as she turned to look at me. love this shot lol and yes ..different fox altogether from the one above this one.

Julie and Jeff,
I would say you both have been extraordinarily successful with your resulting photos despite the different camera techniques!!!

Lovely photo, Im considering taking my 7DII and a 15-85 usm over all my other gear on a trip to Cambodia in a few weeks, really dont want the hassle of changing lenses, seeing your shots makes me realise I really dont have to go with the full frame to get some lovely landscapes
