    basically, I wan fast AF and want to prevent the below



    basically, the AF jumped to focus on the car when it swing into the center AF point.

    With "ring of fire" I tink the AF should be able to maintain track on the face instead.

    Good choice. But of course only you yourself could know what type of body you want, judging on what stuff you shoot.

    The 5D is still more or less a consumer-styled body, so I don't really see the justification for paying > $5k for it. The AF is unproven yet, , only 3fps, seems the shutter lag is worse than even 20D's, flash sync of only 1/200 (also slower than 20D). Also have to fork out extra for the batt grip. IMO, not worth it, considering what u pay for it. Seems the bulk of the price goes into the full-frame sensor.

    The 1-series body would last u a long long time, prolly 5 years or even more if u take good care of it. I still think its more worthy to upgrade to it rather than 20D, in the long run. Speaking from my own POV, as a 10D owner.

    Nice shot. Thats the big problem with consumer level cams when it comes to servo tracking...10D one simply CMI. I have tried shooting birds in flight before, boy, they are freaking fast! And much smaller subjects, moving erratically. My keeper rate is only abt 20-30%, most of the frames OOF or soft/blur. Felt like throwing the thing into the sea at that time. Lost a lot of possible keepers.


    With "ring of fire" I tink the AF should be able to maintain track on the face instead.
    Absolutely. Thats the main reason for buying 1 series. The "ring of fire" AF rocks.

    See how loh... if really tight on budget I might go for 20D as interim solution, cuz I'm still not getting viable returns for my photography still..
