Hello there. The names Mike. New to this forum also new to the whole photography scene. Well let me start off my first dslr I owned was a Nikon D3000. Good camera but I needed something with video capability and the revolving screen. So I go and buy a Canon EOS Rebel T3i 18-55mm kit. So far I'm very happy with the works on this dslr. I currently own Canon 18-55mm lens, Tamron 18-200mm Macro lens, and Tokina 80-400mm lens. Reason for going from a Nikon to Canon was my girlfriends god father is a Photographer who only works with Canon. So I can use his lenses when needed. So I go to his place one day so he could teach me a few tips with my canon. Long story short I leave his house with Photoshop, A aluminum tripod and the Tokina 80-400mm lens for free.
I was told by him that I could only use the lens in MF mode. Which is cool. But when I put the lens in AF and hit the shot button half way at the same time spinning the focus ring I noticed that helps the AF to focus on my target. Any suggestions? Help appreciated. I would love to get this AF feature to be working 110%.
