Strange. The smallest frame is my most used setting.dslrdummy said:Thanks for that. I use the small frame but struggle to get consistently sharp shots even of an isolated subject. Whether it is a focus issue or sharpness (or operator error) I haven't worked out yet. The lenses work fine on my 1DXii. My understanding is that the small focus frame doesn't work in continuous AF and so I only shoot in non-continuous or switch to the larger frame with only average results. Will just keep exploring the camera and trying different lenses and settings.AlanF said:I am using the M5 with the Tamron 100-400mm. It is a very light combination for nature photography and very sharp. The lack of spot focus is a drawback for isolating a small bird surrounded by branches but as long as you can frame the subject in the smallest focussing frame the reproducibility and consistency of AF is simply outstanding and much more reliable than with my 5Ds. Here is a shot similar to one I posted in the Bird Portrait thread.
