It helps if your target is further away than the minimum focus distance. Just sayin'

This also applies to the times when you think your 50 1.4 AF motor is locked up.
The switch is in the on position, but it work focus on my laptop! (sitting at my desk)
Tries to manually focus with same effect.... oh!

Happened to me with trying to get a portrait of a Greylag Goose the other day, It's so tame that it wandered into the 12ft min distance of the 400 5.6. I instantly chimped the shot, zoomed in and thought. Aww crap AI SERVO at it again. Turns out that 12ft is actually a long way.
