Steller's Jays are spectacular. Scarce around here, but I've had one spend the past two winters here. Sadly for me, it left a couple weeks ago; I'm hoping it will return in again October.

Thanks! Can I bring my cameras?

I appreciate the comment. On the focus, hmm, that's a good question. I use center focus most of the time, or select another single point. It seems to me that it is about the same as the 50D, at least I don't notice any difference. A few weeks ago I took several thousand photos of tribal/cultural dancing where frequently there was a lot of fast movement. I got a lot of good images using AI Servo, but as expected there were a lot out of focus with the telephoto and shallow (f/5.6-f/10) depth of field. For relatively stationary subjects it does well I think, but for faster moving objects it seems to miss a lot. I haven't had the pleasure of using a 1d series camera, so maybe I don't know what I am missing? Most of my wildlife shots are of relatively still animals and birds and the camera focus seems ok for those shots. I have got some decent birds in flight too, but only 10-40% of those are in focus depending on the circumstances.

Thanks for the info !Appreciate the comparison to the 50D as that is what I shoot these days. I have never tried a 1D body either and am afraid the focus is so much more precise that I wouldn't be satisfied with my 50D anymore.
Cheers !
