Looking at 7D II specs, I can't wait to see rumors 5D4 & 1DX II from Mr. CR

I honestly do not believe any Canon or Nikon system currently has anything like flexible spot. I know there are the zone and all points modes, but when you pick a single AF point, as far as I know (and maybe the 1D X is different), only that one point will be used, regardless.
I think you are mistaken. Just to make sure we're on the same page here regarding the 5DIII (that page is p.77 from the 5DIII manual), with 61-pt auto selection in AI Servo, you manually select any single AF (1), and the AF system will track the subject across the array of AF points, switching points (2).
So again, can you please explain what is different about the Sony system?
Well, maybe it's just something up with my 5D III. It's currently in my hands. I'm looking at the top LCD, and it says "AI SERVO". When I look through the viewfinder, I see the AF display for One-Shot AF. I don't see any AF points displayed...I only see the brackets. If I move the joystick around, no AF point shows up or is selected. If I activate AF...THEN I see AF points.
Manual, p. 74:
With 61-point automatic selection AF, you can set the starting AF point for AI Servo AF
Right. It doesn't seem to work on my particular 5D III.
For all that the 7DII is shaping up to be a mini-1D X, I'm just going to stick with my full-sized 1D X.

hummer from today - not quite sharp on her eyes, but I liked the pose and setting.
Good timing. Well done Christopher.
Hmmm. Maybe it is time to upgrade my G6! Well, when I want something small I've got my M. And, my wife is VERY happy with her RX1000iii 'cause she really wanted a viewfinder.
I'm probably going to get one just for the AF system. Any other improvements are gravy
Nice, but where is the EVF???
