I dunno what everyone is complaining about I just use the force to work out where the AF point is, doesn't everyone?
If only we were all as tuned into the Force as you. What an incredible ability!
Can somebody explain to me as I'm confused. I'm seeing comments that the AF points still glow up red?
I have a 5D Mark II at the moment and want a 5D Mark III. When I move focus around the points glow red. When I focus on a point, it glows red before snapping the photo. What's changed?
Your selected 5D3 viewfinder AF point in AI Servo mode shows as black, unlike 5D2, 1D Mk4 etc which show your selected AF Point in easy to track illuminated RED. Photographers are having unexpected and unappreciated difficulty keeping their selected AF point on the subject in certain dark conditions or if the AF point is on a black suit for example. So Brian Squibb's comment that the solution to the black AF point issue is a 1D Mk4 is a completely authentic one. I'm on the lookout for a good, low mileage 1D4 as a buddy/twin for my 1D4.
Certainly it's a non-issue for some photographers, but still a very real, valid negative experience for plenty of others who don't appreciate the functionality downgrade.
