What's your preference? I mean most of the time you shoot, because there ale always situations you've got to go the other way. But still... AF or MF? How do you use the AF points? Servo? I think it would be valuable for us newbs to learn how you pros (and other newbs of course ) do it. As for me, my XTi kit lens are not exactly what I'd call precise when it comes to the focusing ring, so unless it is not too dark for AF, I usually don't bother using MF. I also can't get myself to use the multi-spot AF, most of the time I've just got the center spot on and aim it at the thing I want in focus. Servo? No, not really.
