one more question on the tree lined shot;

where was your focus point? did you let the camera choose it or were you using MF or AF+MF mode?

Thanks!

I focused on the nearest tree trunk. I always use just a single focus point enabled and pick my spots to focus. Usually it is the center-point and my process is to first meter the scene, then focus, re-compose and shoot. If I am really close to the subject and I do not want to focus and then move the camera to recompose, for fear moving the camera might shift the camera to subject distance enough to cause it to go out of focus, I will then move the AF point around in the frame to the precise point I want to focus.

I also often have the AF area shrunk down to the smallest 14x available so the focus can be as exact as possible.

The one automatic focus point selection method that intrigues me the most is face detection, which in the past has not always worked so well in the DSLR bodies. I have "played with it", but I'm not sure yet I would fully trust it if I was at an event shooting something that someone was paying me to shoot.
