I totally agree. It would be a wonderful firmware fix.
The two pictures btw, were shot from the same sequence.
The second shot was actually taken before the fist shot (you can tell from the pic numbers). It was a semi-overcast day with constantly changing conditions. Overall, the camera did a good job. it nailed focus on both and exposure was very good on one and good on half of the other one.

Thank you for your kind comments and recommendations. I did need to ETTR on the shot. Anyway, the 5D III AF is remarkable and I could not be happier with the purchase. This image was taken from the same sequence.
I will consider changing my online ID. You have a good point.

Great Article. Thank you. I read it last week on Thursday and set  CF1 up with the multiple button zone af control. On Friday, I happened to be at a good place during a good time. I captured a sequence that included this shot thanks to your recommendations. I just received my 5D III through CLP last Tuesday.

Thanks for the url. Works well with my 7D.

A little help with a qualifier:
I recently rented a 5D III for the purpose of examining the F8 focus with a 100-400 when paired with a 1.4 III tc.
Subjectively, it worked well. The af was not perceptibly slower than "normal" in decent light. The picture quality was good but was affected. Because of some bad weather and a personal emergency, I was unable to use Reikan's focal to really dial it in. Overall, I would not buy a 5D III for the F8 but it certainly is useful. Btw, the 5D III was very impressive with its autofocus but I am sure you already know that.
I normally shoot, birds mostly, with a 7D.

Thank you Click.
For others who are also getting error messages, if you go to (and click on) "Clouds on Video" at the bottom left of the screen (underneath it actually), the very interesting time lapse video will play. I thought the music selction went superbly well with what was a delightful "first effort". I certainly hope to see many more.

Unfortunately, I am getting a vimeo "error loading message" in three different browsers.
