Please refer to this thread about the 7D for background on this question.
Basically, the 7D had the ability to set a "memorized" AF point, which you can instantly AF-on with a dedicated button other than the shutter. In effect at any given moment, you can either choose to AF on the currently selected point, or AF on the memorized point. Very handy for when there are multiple objects of interest in your frame.
On top of this massively useful feature (for my type of shooting), the 7D has other handy features for quick AF point selection:
- Orientation linked AF option
- Pressing the joystick will jump to the center AF point, and press again to jump back to the previous AF point.
I'm just wondering if the 5D3 has any improvements on this. I assume it at least can do everything the 7D can do. But I'm wondering if it has even more capability like
- set more than 1 memorized pt (per orientation), with yet another extra dedicated button that you can assign it to
- More tricks to quickly selecting a desired AF point.
Can any owners of the 5D3 dig into these advanced AF functions?
