The question was asked on the Df thread as to when folks use the various focusing methods with their camera. So, I think this is where we can have our discussion of when we use the various focusing techniques.
To start, I will say that when capturing a moving subject, be it animals, people, cars, bikes, etc. I tend toward the C-AF and most often the 9-point area. With more static subjects, I like the S-AF, and will often focus and reframe. In situations where I am using a manual focus lens, I will sometimes use my eye, just like fifty years ago…
These are only a very few of the almost unlimited focusing scenarios, so, this is where we can drop our thoughts.
