ya. I'm doing that too but when taking sports, that method is quite slow. Any other way? would using continous focus solve the problem?

sports wise, i use CF, then i sorta point and shoot. without half press. works very fine, coz AF is very fast, can get almost instantaneous shot if using 1 area HS focus..

Just a thought...has anyone tried shooting a fast moving object moving very fast towards you (eg. 100m dash) using continuous focus? If I shoot using burst mode, will the continuous focus continue to focus on the moving object even when the shutter release is depressed during this time? :think:
