I'm curious about the appeal of pictures of birds where the eye(s) is/are in focus, but the rest of the bird is not. I bet that will be hard to do with the new f/11 lenses. I hope someone starts a new thread to post those pictures. I'm interested in the appeal. Maybe it works for birds better than on people.I don't know how I have ever managed to take a photo of a bird without eye-AF. I had better delete the lot and start all over again.
