I read this in the manual, and I get more confused. (by the way, this is a question about that * button we are always talking about) :lmao: Say I'm shooting sports, if I use the #3 setting AF "pulse" No AE lock, am I stopping the auto focus? Wouldn't I want the autofocus to be on, since the subjects are in motion? Why wouldn't I want to use mode 1 where the autofocus is started when I hit the button? Or did I read it wrong, and all the * button, Mode 3, does is manually focus the camera, and then the auto takes over when I'm panning? Because that's what I want to do. Force a starting focus point and then have the AI Servo take over and track the subject.
