I had my red dot AF invisible yesterday in the strong sunlight. No system is perfect unfortunately.No system is perfect, from manufactured goods to political systems. But in the context of this discussion, it's clear that Canon inexplicably let go the highly workable red AF point system for a comprehensively inferior, deeply unpopular, black AF point system. Sigh...And just as the Canon PR machine thought they had put the 1D Mk3 AF debacle behind them they've got yet another AF related bomb to defuse.
And what a shame. My 5D3 AF is the best I have ever experienced in either OneShot or AI servo mode in bright light or dimly function rooms, except when I lose sight of the selected AF point. And that's far too often.
Canon have re-written the paradox manual; a brilliant new AF system throttled by a simple, wrong GUI decision.
