    Was looking through my images and found this Marina I never edited. I did post a different shot of this without the storm clouds.

    Continuous spot focus for the BIF is certainly a given.
    In the out of focus stationary bird situation I'm guessing that the centre focus sensor is unable to lock on and so one of the four sensors around the central sensor is kicking in and focusing on something other than the bird, like a branch or something. I don't know whether the A100 centre sensor does better with verticals or horizontals but I'll bet someone here does. In any case you may have to use single focus mode, focus on a part of the bird with the right contrast, lock and recompose before releasing the shutter.
    The A100 has been criticised for it's weak AF performance and the better performance of the A700 in this area is a one good reason to upgrade. Apart from it's stronger AF motor, the A700 has a Center Double Cross AF sensor. The center focus point has two horizontal and two vertical sensors plus a new high precision (horizontal) sensor in the middle.

    Stormy weather to the east, Nice sunny weather to the west. The battle was fought, and the west won! Sunny and warm for the next few days!

    Nothing phenomenal, but I have wanted to get a shot like this for a while, with the back of the dogs head in focus, and everything else not. Dog's eye view. Straight off the camera, just converted from RAW to jpeg. Maybe I should start doing more PP, but I'd rather be shooting.

    Thanks. I feel like I am learning a lot, and between the 28-85 and the beercan, I've finally got some good glass to work with. I still don't have the wide angle or low light I want, but this has been a much better setup.

    I was driving and seen this lady walking in the rain and then the sign caught my eye.
