    It covered more or less the entire head of the bird.

    You at least had a target in your example. My example is similar to a
    shot I struggled with recently where I want to focus on a particular
    layer within the leaves overhead. The camera was more easily satisfied
    than I was.

    which is precisely the reason I often switch to manual focusing. for
    macro work, I use manual focus more than 90% of the time.

    Thanks.

    not at the long end, it wasn't.
    bullshit. it may not have been ideal, but it was definitely usable for
    moving subjects.

    what were you saying about making absolute claims??
    i had an 80-400. i got rid of it not because it was slow, but because i
    rarely used it.

    I wouldn't go that far but I definitely use it. That's why I wish I
    had bought a Katzeye.

    Why are contacts necessary for focus confirmation?

    Then your experience ws different than most other people I know who got
    rid of the lens for the same reason I did.

    yes it is, and it isn't what you say it was. you have once again made a
    fool of yourself.

    so when you say 'totally unusable for captures that moved', you
    actually meant something else, that 'most other people' had problems.

    my, how the story changes.

    PeterN said "non afs lenses". That's not the same as 'non af lenses'.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikon_F-mount
    "AF — The original autofocus designation, indicating focus driven by
    a motor inside the camera body. All AF lenses have a CPU."

    .......

    "AF-S — Autofocus-Silent. Uses a "Silent Wave Motor" (SWM)
    (ultrasonic motor) to focus quietly and quickly."

    other way around.

    *i* said non afs lenses, further clarifying it by saying mechanical
    linkage. that's about as clear as it gets. there is no ambiguity.

    peter said non-af. he's confused, can't read and made a fool of himself.
