Just got my new 7D, plowed through the manual and this may be "just getting used to it," but -
On the 40D when the AF point achieved focus, it would flash red and the focus confirmation light would light steady. If I remember, this even happened when only a single AF point was selected - it would flash red + the confirmation light.
Am I correct in the 7D the AF point that achieves focus is black and you rely on the confirmation light? Specifically, if only a single point was selected - its already black in the viewfinder - so the only indication of "achieved focus" is the confirmation light?
If I'm right - this will take a little getting used to - I sort of liked that flash of the focus point - or did I miss a configuration option in the menus somewhere? (I know I can get the entire viewfinder to flash red but not the single AF point.)
And one other question - what does "AI" stand for, as in "AI Servo AF?" Been bugging me for a while now. I know what it does and when to use it, but never knew what the "AI" meant.
