Nah, slongs you set it to JPEG FINE or RAW FINE, (anything with optimal quality) They will come out nice and sharp. Megapixels only affect your prints. So the larger you print the more, higher megapixel count will help.

Hmm check out how to move through or adjust your AF points. You should have 9 to choose from. Soz, im a Nikon User. Trying my best to help translate nikonian to a canon user :sticktong

Why not take a series of photos and see the difference for yourself?

Obviously, you haven't been reading the manual properly then...

punctuation...!
what is boz?
For portraits, when the eyes are sharp, the brain perceives the image to be in focus.
You can just leave the focus selector to be in the middle, aim it at the eyes, half-press, re-compose, and fire. Chances are you also want to meter of the person's face anyway, so this method works well for center-weighted or spot metering.

Min focus distance is the closest you can focus on the object.
Anything nearer than that you are not able to focus.
Check your lens specs for the min focus distance.

the 'mm' is referring to the lens' focal length, not its minimum focusing distance.
Just google "lens mm" and you would have gotten your answer.
