Well as I was waiting for the bus to go home, had about 7minutes and I was next to the street i though hey lets try out that AF system Graham was talking about for panning, so i did.

And a Mercedes SL 500 was getting close (yes i do knw alot about cars as well, big fan!) so i said lets do this so i grabed two shots of the car.

Honestly i though that these panning shots turned out freaking awsome, what do you think

Nice!

Do you see any difference between the AF modes? I know I did, but the it can be a bit of a pain if something gets in the way because the camera can start to follow the distraction instead. You can crop it out but you still lose the focus. I got a lot of that at the grand prix.

Well yeah i tried panning on the "normal" AF mode, and it came out blurry and i tried this on some guys on kayaks so it didnt really work. I used the "2nd option" avalibale for me the one that is supposed to work for moving objects!

Well i made sure that there was nothing in the way, and that was the only car that was crossing by at that time, i used MF so i would get the car (i tried focusing before hand on some cars that passed by) so i woul knw where it would cross and whot not! I just took these two shots, so i dont knw really maybe its something i will notice in the future!
