My EOS 3 is my favorite camera (best DSLR I have is the 7D), but I haven't found eye control focus dependable. Like a previous poster said - the 5D III, for me, would be an upgrade for the EOS 3, not the cropped-sensor camera. I know I'm not adding anything useful to the conversation. Just can't stay away from any mention of the EOS 3.

I wonder if it's the fault of the eye tracking or the eye? I have a feeling that people don't always hold their eye on the exact point they want focused. When I used to shoot with the EOS 3, I'd sometimes have my eye on the composition and not just the subject. I suppose I could have trained myself to get better results with it.

Fantastic Feature!

For me, it worked perfectly and was a GREAT feature.  Super convenient and intuitive.  I wish they would add it and extend it so you could, for example, look at a parameter like ISO, turn a dial, and the ISO changes.
