Noting too special here, just a few test shots. I still think I *might* be having some distant focussing issues in Continous Area focus mode, not not sure.

Thanks gals, but these aren't distant objects, and

They're fairly big targets at this range. What I did miss the focus on this evening was a mallard in flight that was about 300ft away. I even missed it before he took off, while he was just standing there, about 400 ft away. This all while in Continuous AF, Single, Center focus point. He took off really quickly, but I never once got a good lock on him. That was a big disappointment.

Steve,

These look fine to me. Can't say about the flying duck except that I have always had trouble getting locks on those guys, basically because they are just so fast.

I have any idea. Why don't you just send that X down to me, and I'll test it out at Merritt in a few weeks and let you know whether you have a prob. :lol:
