Just a question... I have a 5D3 and two 1DX's... I back button focus (which really makes no difference other than I'm VERY conscious of focus...)
I've "roughly" followed this "problem" (I had two 7D's prior which had the same set up... so I really don't understand...) and I can kinda see people's concern... I am normally shooting at night, under horrible lighting at baseball and football stadiums (thus why the 1DX's...)... is there a focusing problem that you're experiencing because the focus points are dark or is there something else that I'm missing? I routinely shoot a school who's colors are black and orange... I use a single focus point that changes if I'm landscape vs. portrait... I know where the spot is, I know I have to get it on the player... I know the spot will grab focus where I need when I have the subject framed how I want... if there's nothing there for the camera to focus on it won't matter if the point is neon pink the camera won't grab focus... if there IS something, my three bodies are grabbing focus (albeit the 1DX's grab it far quicker than the 5D3...)....
Am I missing something? Are you moving the focus point around that much under that poor of lighting conditions that you can't find the point? If the lighting is that poor, are you getting it to focus? Or are you concerned if it's focusing? I'm just not getting it... I've been with the black focus points for two weeks shy of three years... I'm really not quite understanding the problem. Help?
I agree, I have been using the mkiii for around 5 months and to be honest i have got used to it now and don't find it a problem
