    By the way, it does not hurt to have a manual focusing grid in your camera, too. You can live w/o one ... but, why not make things easier on yourself? It's your camera!

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Now I wish I had an a700! darn.... because I don't have the DMF and AF-A menus in my a300. It sounds really useful for composing things exactly how you want it. I'd like to be able to manipulate the focuser after it's auto focused in on the subject. Guess I'll be the one stuck toggling AF/MF!

    What is the manual focusing grid you are talking about. I didn't see it in any of the menus. (must be another a700 feature )

    Yeah I thought it was something like that. It's in an old Canon SLR that I have.
