It's dead-slow, but it's also more accurate. I use live view AF when i'm doing macro stuff for work.

Just got a D7000 for £773. I think I got a good price. Cheapest seller on amazon was £100 more.

dont you microadjust the body to the lens? And you can't with the 60D (Canon removed the functionality from the xxD series, the 50D had it though )

I got my camera and 50 f/1.4 back from Canon. It seems better than it was, but there's no indication on the repair forms of whether or not the body was adjusted to the 50... (also no shutter count on the repair slip, but I have a ballpark of where it is).

Seriously doubt it. You can't let it overshadow their 1 series.

It's still gonna be another year till they release it most likely.

Maybe not. Canon's stopped shipping (and possibly producing) the 1DsIII, so.. possibly 5DIII/1DsIV this fall? Speculation on my part, of course.

Someone sell me their 5D2 cheap. Just got booked for a 50th Anniversary so I'm going to have to rent almost everything.

What lens? That happens on my 70-300. I have to manually focus until it's close, then start af.

using a light meter it gives an accurate reading how much light there is.

With a chart or table you are basically eyeballing if it is cloudy or sunny and estimating what the current lighting conditions are.

the best way is to get a standalone meter, say a sekonic. They are accurate and will give you the best readings, BUT they are expensive.

You can also get a camera with a built in meter, but they do get fooled when you are shooting against a black or white background. So carry a grey card with you for those times.

yes you would need to microadjust the body. but you can also mail back the lens and have the factory adjust the lens for you.

do you have focus range on your lens? cause if its set to say 10m-infinity it wont focus if its closer then 10m.

I don't think there is a focus range, no.

Looking threw first few shots taken with the Nikkor AF-S 35mm f/1.8G DX that wifey/daughter gave me for fathers day. I think I'm going to like this lens a lot.....
